What is a Giclée?

A giclée is a new, innovative method of producing art prints. The print is produced in actual watercolor stock, very similar to the stock on which originals are painted. This superb texture and ability to absorb ink allows us to produce prints that are unparalleled in their resemblance to the original.

 

What is an Artist Proof?

In creating a fine limited edition, the printer goes through a series of artist proofs. These prints are compared to the original and the artist, along with the printer, makes corrections and improvements. It is not uncommon to go through as many as 10 to 20 different proofing stages! Once the color is approved, a few top quality impressions are inspected by the artist and designated as artist proofs (APs). The number of artist proofs is generally small compared to the overall size of the edition. Typically, Bill produces 30 artist proofs.

 

What is a Remarque?

With a small number of prints from each edition, Bill creates an original painting on the border. These miniature paintings (Remarques) are unique, beautiful compliments to the particular print. Often it may be a specific item in the scene that is isolated and given great attention. Sometimes Bill will look at the subject from another perspective or create a scene that is simply unique to the original print. Each Remarque is a one of a kind and adds to the value and collectability. The broad palette that Bill uses makes each Remarque a small colorful original. Remarques are generally limited to 15 per edition.
