Giclee (pronounced Jhee-clay) is from a French word meaning spraying of ink. It is a method to perfectly reproduce paintings and portraits to allow you to have the beauty of the original at a lower cost. The original art or transparency of it is scanned at high resolution. The scan is then color corrected using the original painting as the gauge. The finished scan is then transferred to the giclee printer. The paper used is 100% cotton rag fine art paper, acid free, pH neutral, an archival paper to match the original art paper. When giclee is used for watercolors, the translucency of the museum quality Giclee shows exactly like the original and when framed cannot be distinguished from the original. All paintings are available printed on paper or stretched canvas. Please contact me for prices and shipping estimate.
