Galnthus Elwesii snowdrop oil painting

The snowdrop paintings from my art exhibition at Painswick Rococo Garden have been reproduced into limited edition prints and are currently for sale at the historic Cotswold attraction. This framed print of 'Galanthus Elwesii' is available for £99.95.

These snowdrop prints have proven popular. They all have a unique number within the total edition size of 195. Once this number is reached, no more reproductions of this type can be made, making them 'limited editions' and increasing their value. The handwritten title, numbering and artist's signature on each print ensures the limited edition print's authenticity.

The photo above shows my uncle Hugo & cousin-in-law Carolyn holding a larger framed print of 'Breaking Free'. Carolyn was refurbishing rooms in her home and had her heart set on these limited edition prints of 'Galanthus Elwesii' & 'Breaking Free' for the the guest bedroom.

On my recommendation, the mounting & framing was done by Wall Space; a wonderful shop in the centre of Cirencester. I worked here many moons ago and have seen their continued dedication to ensure customer satisfaction. Hugo has since bought the same framed print of 'Galanthus Elwesii' for his home.

My time-lapse video of the creation of 'Galanthus Elwesii' (oil on canvas - 100 x 70cm) was taken over the period of around 15 hours. Painted entirely with sponges helped to add softness and a luscious quality to this artwork.

Greeting cards of my snowdrop designs are also available to buy at Painswick Rococo Garden. The gift shop is located in The Orangery- this is also the ticket entrance and is used as a wedding venue outside the snowdrop season.

The Garden is open from 10.30am - 5.00pm (last admission at 4.30pm) - directions below:
