Finished and signed. I used to include year in my signature, but for some years I find it needless. Instead I date my work on the back, it’s really enough :) Moreover, most of photos of my works published on the Internet has no signature at all, that’s because I make high quality photographs (or scans) to be ready to make giclee prints which I sign by myself.

A few beagles in pastel

Here is a painting of beagles which I finished couple weeks ago. It was a nice experience portraying 9 dogs together :)

Pastel, ~20×26″
Beagles pastel painting

I made also a giclée artprint. It’s almost impossible to distinguish it from the original.

beagles painting - comaprison of original and giclee

It is printed on the highest quality paper, Hahnemuhle German Etching (310g), with a fine surface texture which is velvety smooth:
giclee print close-up
The printer used is a large format HP Designjet Z100 with great HP Vivera archival inks.
In order to make the print in such size, I had to make 12 photos (10megapixels) then stich it together. It is time consuming work, because photographs stiching software is not capable to cope with art, where every pixel is important. Scanning is not possible because pastel can easely smudge when laying on flatbed scanner.
