"This is us. My painting was inspired by a drawing by our daughter Shyama that she did when we lived in a semi in Bedford. I was a teacher then - with green hair apparently." CR
FAMILY by Colin Ruffell.
Signed and numbered Fine-art print
FAMILY is one of the naive style pictures from my portfolio of giclee fine-art prints.
The style of painting is called ‘cloisonnism’ where the areas of colour are surrounded by black lines. The term was coined in post-impressionist France in 1888. I adopted the technique after watching my kids paint. And children’s art has inspired the way that I distort perspective. It is an interesting picture-language and great fun to paint.
First I create the original painting then I scan the image to make a digital file. We own a wide format Epson giclee printer meaning that I can print-on-demand to the highest international standards providing a valuable investment for your fine-art collection.
