New work, mag & supplies. Let’s go!


New art supplies, new edition of the hi-fructose mag & a peek at a new work in progress.
Fish are outside my comfort zone but I wanted to try something new different for me. I think I’m going to enjoy doing more sea creatures in the future.
The mag has a great interviews in it with two of my favourite artists jennybird & curiot. I bought it from Villain in Fitzroy which has all sorts of little treasures. Worth a visit 🙂

I’m not sure about the colour of the bear, what do you think?

Getting Fine Art Prints/Giclees Made

EllaSmethurstArt Etsy Shop

Some of the prints available through EllaSmethurstArt Etsy Shop

I recently went through the very interesting process of getting prints made of some of my artworks. It was a great learning experience for me and I learned a lot about using colour profiles, soft proofs and printing templates to make sure my prints would come out looking as good as my originals. I went through imagescience one of the best print labs in Melbourne and now have beautiful, archival prints on heavy weight (300gsm+) 100% cotton paper. I won’t say it was the easiest thing to do but I think it’s definitely been worthwhile, and something I would recommend to other artists. Some of my most popular pieces such as Dreamcatcher, Lost, Solid Rocket Propellant, and Grace Kelly are now available as A4 and A3 prints in my Etsy shop EllaSmethurstArt. Check it out 🙂
