Out On A Limb art reproduction by artist Sandra Whyte

Artist Sandra Whyte had me copy this painting of Sirroco the Kakapo onto canvas and art paper.

Mounted canvas prints and art prints are available to purchase. More information can be found at Sandra’s web link Sandra Whyte¬†. Maungatautari Trust’s website can be found here

The painting sold in excess of $3000.

At The Turn Of The Tide by Polly Anderson

Painted by Polly Anderson

Artist Polly Anderson was looking for quality canvas print art reproductions of her paintings. Polly had a series of art works she’d had copies done on a medium format camera and copied to transparencies.

This was the first one done – scanned at maximum resolution on my Nikon 9000 scanner. This produced a nicely detailed image making a 760 x 355mm canvas print.

 

Polly loved the vibrant colours from the scan and print and will be back to make more copies in her series. More of her work can be seen at her website here
