The inspiration behind the original painting
My favourite lock on this stretch of canal if I am coming down the flight. My least favourite if I am going up! This is the view as you leave the lock and look back at the last lock on the Wolverhampton 21.
To celebrate the VMA open studios 2017, I painted 10 small 8″ x 8″ paintings and numbered them from 10 down to 1 as a countdown to the event. This is one of the series.
What is a hand finished canvas print?
Printed on real cotton canvas, the canvas print has gold and other highlights added by hand using artist quality acrylic paints. It is then finished with varnish to protect.
The colours on the screen (on my laptop anyway!) do not do justice to the actual print. I hope you enjoy this Hand finished print as much as I enjoyed making it. Hand finishing my prints means that every one is a labour of love.
This is a print of an original painting by Jan Vallance. This print is supplied in a 12″ (30cm) or 10″ (25.5cm) mount dependant on size ordered.
This print is signed on the front, below the mount. Because of the style of print this is not visible when mounted.
I retain copyright on all my works. I am happy to list a handfinished print of any of the original paintings in my shop. Please contact me if you have a request.
