I have a new gallery on the Fine Art America website called Original Paintings where you can buy a one-of-a-kind original alcohol ink painting created by me. The price and size of each painting will be posted in this gallery. You have to contact me directly to buy an original as Fine Art America only takes care of transactions related to their print-on-demand service. You may email me (Dee) directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call the studio number and leave a voice mail at: 540.422.0096. I return all calls and replies to emails within 24 hours.
Alcohol inks are an acid-free, highly-pigmented, permanent and fast drying medium that I use on non-porous surfaces. The painting surface is very smooth and the alcohol ink colors just float on top since there is no absorbtion to this type of substrate. This medium creates very lovely colors and magical designs, which you will surely love!
The painting sizes I work in are 5x7, 9x12, 11x14 and 20x26 (inches). You can always make the painting larger by adding matting and framing which you should do to keep it protected. I also spray the finished piece with a clear gloss protective spray that will not disturb the ink. I then use a coating of acrylic UV polymer varnish for a final layer of protection.
There are also 19 unique animal art giclee prints available for sale at DevaArt Studio Art Gallery. My two galleries that sell giclee prints are in the Animal Art and Art Nouveau genres.
All of my giclee prints (printed one at a time; called print-on-demand), were reproduced from my original paintings and drawings. I have personally had prints ordered to compare them to the originals and they do a fabulous print job of both clarity and getting the color just right (I am very picky about this)! These giclee prints are professionally reproduced with exquisite colors.
The mediums I have used in the originals that the giclee prints are reproduced from are gouache (opaque watercolor), color pencil, watercolor and pen&ink. There are different art print sizes and museum quality art papers (9 paper types available) to choose from or you can choose to have it printed as canvas art. You can also pick out custom matting and framing or just order the giclee print. Fine Art America is where they are printed and shipped from as they take care of the entire transaction from payment to shipping. They also offer a refund if there is any reason you are not satisfied.
