VENICE – VIEW ONE is a greetings card featuring iconic views of Venice.

Colin Ruffell is the artist and he signs every card by hand .

The card can be framed and kept as an art piece because the picture is printed using fine-art paper and lightfast inks.

The cards are blank inside for your personal message, besides that every package includes a white envelope.

“This is one of the worldwide cityscape pictures from my portfolio of giclee fine-art prints.

Visiting famous places is one of the most fascinating things that I have ever done. Of course I am lucky because I was born in London which is crammed with iconic venues. But over the years I have visited, and painted, lots of other wonderful places, all over the world.

This is how I do it.
For landscapes and cityscapes I go and see the place if possible. I make sketches or a plein-air painting, take photos, and gather background information, before I bring these back to my studio here in Brighton UK.

Or I digitally develop ideas for paintings, or just experiment with a blank canvas.

Then I paint the original painting before I scan the image to make a master digital file. We own a wide format Epson giclee printer meaning that I can make my own test proofs, then print-on-demand to the highest international standards providing a valuable investment for your fine-art collection.”
