Now, all is left is to enjoy the Colour Up of the day,
cooked with a bit of time and lot of love and care.
If you love one of my drawings enough, you can buy it and hang it in your special place.
I now print them myself, so I can put as much care in the prints I do in the painting itself.
After a thorough touch up of the digital image, to ensure the best rendering, each copy is printed as if it was a the first and last.

The illustration is first wrapped in a beautiful folder ready to be gifted, then sealed in a crystal sleeve,
and finaly put in a sleek flatpack envelope, fitting like Sean Connery's 3-piece suit.

or enjoy your splash of colour in your very own home.
You can find additional details and a pricing grid (for extra options) on the How It Is Shipped page.
Your print will arrive in a beautiful folder, ready to be gifted (to a loved one or yourself !). But once open, you will need to frame it.
You can take it to any local framer, and have it framed there.
And because I care so much, I chose the size of the prints to match IKEA's RIBBA frame range sizes.
They have a very good value range of square frame. I even use them in my own studio.
No detail is left to chance.

I have a few other shipping options, depending on the destination. Like tracking or Express Courrier.
