Wreck of the Hesperus is the artwork I was commissioned to create for the luxury box set of Procol Harum’s music released in March 2018. Working with the management and the band, the image evolved over a number of months from sketches and early versions to the final artwork you see here.
This is a limited edition run of 10 giclée prints, and each one is signed and numbered.
Created on beautiful, heavyweight watercolour-type paper, with a luxurious subtle texture, I wanted to add a special dimension to these pieces, so I’ve hand-embellished every print with silver leaf and watercolour— making each one truly unique.
You can be confident that even though there are 10 in the world, no two are alike, and your artwork will have its own exceptional characteristics.
The Giclée prints are created using archival quality, Fine Art Trade Guild approved printers, inks and paper, ensuring the prints are colourfast and stable for well over a lifetime.
