The Hanging!

After some fighting with blunt screws, and flat drill batteries I hung the pictures. Very pleased to see that they went up level. I was happy with the order of the images going from left to right. The light is excellent in the room, and I have been allocated plenty of space to allow my …

Printing Decisions

My first thoughts on printing was to use a heavy watercolour type paper, and mount the heavy paper on a solid wooden board.
