A3 Prints and Owl Potraits

A3 Prints and Owl Potraits

Well it has been a while since I have posted an actual long blog post, sorry about that I’ve been rather busy!

Good news, I now have an A3 printer it is absolutely fantastic! Now I can make some really high quality prints and originals as some of my work has never been seen physically on paper. The plan is to print, frame, and exhibit. I missed something important off that list…oh yeah, sell. My online shop has been bare for quite a while, well that is about to change…well in the next week or so.

Barn owl in monochrome
Black and White Version

This image looks particularly good in A3 both the colour version seen on this http://graceowenart.com/gallery-2/wildlife/ page so I shall be doing some lovely, high quality prints of this image. At the moment I am creating more wildlife art than fairy art, but I always like to create something a bit mystical or magical about the paintings I do so, I’m never too far away from the wonderful world of fantasy. I do love Imagine FX (a magazine dedicated to fantasy art)

Anyway, do keep checking back for more art etc and I’ll reveal when my shop is launched with all its new stock! Yay!
