First Flight Water Colour by Nicholas Girling

Splice Water Colour by Mara Girling

Nicholas and I have been working away with the water colours. They are less figurative than many of our art prints. And the focus is art for adults. Most of the water colours are with a greeting card. We have framed some greeting cards for the photography also using an IKEA frame to support the paintings.

Our new water colours are ready and in the shop. Yay.
It has been an interesting project, often rather challenging, and also a bit rewarding when you finally finish one. Water colour can be a tricky medium, and one that is often unforgiving when you try to force the medium. But so much easier when you go with the flow. I am used to working with pencil and ink and ultimately the computer, where decisions can be improved with time. But the water colour is totally in the moment. I guess that's what makes it so amazing and so challenging at the same time!
If you like what you see, please do tell somebody about them. You can do this on facebook or twitter or simply by telling a friend. We hope you enjoy the colour and we look forward to creating more.
I guess in a way, these are rare in that they are the first water colours Printspace has produced and we have so many more to create.
