Each of the original paintings from the 365 Project is available as part of a limited edition print collection of 365 editions. Each print will be hand signed by Paul, along with a a record of your uniqure edition number.
Each artwork is reproduced to the exact size of the original, up to a maximum dimension of 60cm. For any original work larger than this, the longest dimension of the print will be set to 60cm with the artwork then scaled in proportion to the original.
Giclée (zhee-clay) is a French term, in this case meaning “spray of ink”. A giclée is a means of reproducing an original. It is not an original graphic but a fine quality reproduction print. Giclée prints render deep, saturated colours and have a beautiful painterly quality that retains minute detail, subtle tints and blends. The 365 prints are reproduced on high quality, museum grade papers, using premium light fast inks.
The production of a giclée print is not an automatic process. The human touch is critical in several phases of the giclée process. First the giclée prints began as Paul’s original art. Second the work was photographed in studio conditions using a Leica M240 50mb camera. Each artwork was then meticulously colour corrected. That colour correction requires an experienced eye and touch in making the proper adjustments in tone, contrast, sharpness and other factors to produce a print that faithfully reproduces the original. Third, in matching the computer image with the final print, a practised eye must make adjustments for the best results. And last, the printer itself needs steady attention to produce consistent, quality results. In short, the human hand is part of every step of the giclée process, with Paul himsef overseeing each one. Indeed, the difference between a quality giclée print and one that is not, lies almost entirely in the human involvement and craftsmanship.
