Painting, reproductions and prices
I paint mandalas on canvas using acrylic paint. Each one takes at least 60 hours. At my easel is a compass, protractor, ruler, calculator, pencil, rubber and paints.
Each finished mandala has been photographed and then using Photoshop, I have added 'lens flare' to add small amounts of illumination before printing them onto canvas, stretching them and adding thin mat varnish. From time to time I exhibit these alongside the giclee canvas reproductions.
My mandalas are printed onto very high quality canvas. Canvas geeks may be interested to note the specifications: 19 mil. bright white, consistent polycotton blend matte canvas, with an acid-free, neutral pH coating, with a high colour gamut and Dmax (I can only guess at what some of this means), coupled with critical archival certification for 100+ years.
I have stretched the canvases onto''Wunderbars''. These are spring-loaded technology which apply constant tension to keep the canvas under tension no matter the environmental conditions. They will retain their pristine appearance for decades and decades without showing signs of age.
I have applied a proprietary water-based, non-yellowing print varnish developed to protect, preserve and enhance the image. This incorporates high levels of UV inhibitors and is anti-fungal. It is suitable in high humidity environments such as rainforests and bathrooms ;-)
