Handmade Cards

I take photographs of all the pictures I create, partly as a record of what I have done and how my work has progressed, but also to make into cards for sale.  This has turned out to be very popular, and when viewing my pictures you will see which of them have handmade cards available.

These are printed onto A4 card, then cut up and pasted onto cards, either square (125 x 125mm) or oblong (115 x 145mm), generally with a simple gold line around the image, left blank for your own message, and a label on the reverse with my contact details.  It is then packed into a cellophane folder with an envelope.  The price of these cards is £10.00  plus P&P,and I sell them in packs of 4, either all the same, or singles of your choice.

Unique Handmade Cards painted in watercolour or ink

These are made from watercolours pictures or ink designs, sometimes with gold or silver motifs added; each one totally different and never exactly repeated.  Cut into shapes and stuck to cards 125 x 125mm, or 115 x 145mm, generally with a simple gold line around the image, lfeft blank for your own message, and a label on the reverse with my contact details.  It is then packed into a cellophane folder with an envelope.  The price of these cards is £20.00 for a pack of 4 plus P&P.

St Savinien church

TITLE:  St Savinient Church, Charente Maritime

SIZE OF IMAGE:  240mm x 240mm

SIZE OF MOUNT & COLOUR:  400mm x 400mm

PRICE:  SOLD

ARTIST'S DESCRIPTION:  This picture was originally painted in plein air  in 2014.  It is a scene I have painted several times as it is a very iconic building set high above the town overlooking the River Charente.  I don't often paint outside, but the weather in France being much more clement than in the UK it was hardly a penance!  I like this painting as it is full of colour, and one of the first where I managed to find enough contrast in tone.  I shall always have very fond memories of my time in France and the many friends I made there - especially my painting comrades.

CARDS:  Handmade cards available to purchase.

This is a detail of my Pink Lillies picture.  I think it works well in a square format and have already used it to make several cards with pleasing results.

Christmas Robin

TITLE:  Christmas Robin

IMAGE SIZE: 200mm x 200mm

MOUNT SIZE:  300mm x 300mm

PRICE:  £75.00 The sale price will be donated to Forest Holme Hospice.

ARTIST'S OBSERVATIONS:  This card has been produced as a commission for Forest Holme Hospice in Poole as one of their cards for 2016.  It will be for sale in Haskins in Poole later this year and the proceeds will obviously go to the hospice.  I shall also be producing it in a handmade version and again a large proportion of the proceeds will be donated to them.  He is a cheeky little fellow, and I had to ask the permission of the photographer Val Corbett whose picture it is - well the robin is - the holly is mine.  You can see her beautiful work on Pinterest.

Christmas on Poole Quay

TITLE:  Christmas on Poole Quay

IMAGE SIZE:  200mm x 300mm

MOUNT SIZE:  300mm x 400mm

PRICE:  £100.00 All of which will go to Forest Holme Hospice.

ARTIST'S OBSERVATIONS: This Christmas card was commissioned by Forest Holme Hospice in Poole as one of their 2016 cards.  I was asked to paint a local snow scene, and was originally going to do Wimborne, but one cold, sunny day I was visiting Poole Quay and came across all the wonderful old buildings and pubs on the front and thought they might make a great snow scene.  I had to use quite a lot of imagination to add snow to the picture I painted, but it has worked out quite well and hopefully will make the hospice some well-earned donation money.  I will be producing my card in a handmade version for sale, and once again a large proportion of the proceeds will go to the hospice.

CARDS:  Handmade cards are available for sale.

Purple Sheep

Purple sheep were painted around the same time as Curious Calf and on the same textured card.  This time I drew into the patterns made by the paint running and pooling on a surface not designed for watercolour paint.  The card is available in oblong or square format.
