The Hunt Gallery have been busy producing some new prints and they have just been listed on their print website. Although most people recognise Michael’s work for his paintings of interiors, he has also painted many townscapes, landscapes and wildlife - including watercolours and etchings as well as his usual acrylic and oil paintings during his long career. Some are plein air and some are quick sketches which are then developed in the studio.
All their prints are individually produced, high resolution reproductions using a specialist large format printer and ten colour pigment ink set up. This produces rich, deep saturated colours that have a quality that retains the minute and subtly details of the original painting. Their prints are made on the highest quality cotton rag archival paper and are then sealed with four coats of specialist hard wearing U.V. proof varnish which further enhances the richness of the colour and detail.
Underpinning the whole process is the scanning of the original painting. To that end, they use a specialist large format scanner specifically designed for fine art reproduction and used by many of the worlds leading museums, art galleries and public collections.
The whole process is carried out “in house” enabling them to maintain an exacting standard of reproduction that is faithful to the original painting.
