What's New? Art Prints!

Studio UpdatesAbby Leigh EckerComment

I've been getting a lot of inquiries lately about offering prints of some of my original artwork. I'm starting small with the idea of art prints and I've started an open edition of giclee prints for two of my watercolors, Delight in the Little Things and St. Simons Light. I am extremely impressed with the quality of these prints. The inks are high quality and archival so these prints are made to last. They look just like the originals and are even on textured cotton paper to enhance the watercolor painting. For now, I just have these two watercolors available but I'm also working on a new series that will eventually become fabric yardage. I'm excited because it's something very different than what I've done before, a whimsical watercolor series that I plan on offering as open edition giclee prints. I'm being very vague about the subject matter on purpose because I want it to be a surprise! 

Archival Giclee Art Prints are available in my Etsy Store, enjoy and Happy Monday!

Above is the finished piece, "Delight in the Little Things". I used watercolor and hand embroidery.

Below is the original ink drawing (left) and watercolor before the hand embroidery (right).

For more information about this project please refer back to my original post about my submission to the Global Talent Search. The original artwork is for sale in the For the Love of Pattern Etsy Store and I'm considering eventually having a small selection of prints available in the future too. Thanks for reading and enjoy!
