William Sutton Watercolors partners with Falcon Digital Printing in Annapolis, Maryland to offer fine art Giclée prints on archival paper and canvas for selected works shown below in the Galleries.
What is a giclée print?
Giclée (pronounced “gee-clay” or “zhee-clay”) printing is a term derived from the French meaning “to spray or squirt” and is used to describe digital reproductions of original works of art or photographs. Giclée prints are produced at a higher quality than offset printing and are created to last for generations. Giclée prints are printed at a resolution of at least 300 dpi and on mediums that are “archival;” meaning the paper or canvas is acid free, lignin free, pH neutral and consists of a 100% cotton or rag base.
Our prints are made on Epson 9900 and Epson SureColor P9000 printers which can print up to 44" wide.
Hello, I'm Bill Sutton- Artist, practicing Architect, and a general lover of the outdoors, including the Chesapeake Bay region I live in. I get inspired to paint a series of the places I know, like the Delmarva Peninsula, and places I visit with friends like Beersheba Tennessee, and always, the sea, and sailboats finding the wind to conquer the waves.
