Showing Your Artwork

One major problem I get with displaying artwork is perspective. That is to say that the viewer has no real, visual, idea of how large the artwork is. One answer is to post a close-up for detail 


and another t
o show the work in situ. 




For this idea I am in debt to Mary Maxam (Link to her Blog Here)

  2. That is a good idea! Here is a site where you can show your work in several different interiors: https://www.ohmyprints.com/index/455/de/WallApp

  4. Good grief John, that's HUGE by Pen and Ink standards. No wonder it's taken you so long. I was going to ask for a link to an actual-size image so I could see the detail but I wouldn't be able to afford a big enough monitor. LOL.
    Seriously good work ... I'm in awe. ;-)

    1. Hello John, Most of my P & I works are large, it comes from being a fan of Axel Haig (1835 – 1921). Loved your boathouse - so nice to see fellow P & I artists, not many of us around.... which is why your forum is so important

  5. Excellent idea to give us all a sense of its scale. This can only be describes as... drum roll and trumpet blowing...magnificent! Or maybe, awesome? Your choice!!
