Paintings and Prints of Scotland, The Lake District, Snowdonia and the Alps by Neil J Barlow


About our Prints.

All our prints are reproduced to the highest standards from original watercolour paintings by Neil J Barlow. Neil has supervised the production of every print to ensure that the colour and detail of the original have been reproduced as faithfully as possible.

Our extensive range is second to none, and is still evolving and improving.

At first our prints were produced for us by skilled craftsman printers, using lithographic machines, fine art printing papers, and lightfast inks. Now, the advent of sophisticated digital technology has enabled us to produce all our prints in-house and; with every aspect of production from the first brushstroke to the finished print under our control; to achieve higher standards than was previously possible.

We use Epson professional machines equipped with the latest, lightfast, pigment based inksets; and print on fine papers made either by Epson, or St Cuthberts Mill.

Digitally produced prints are now commonly referred to as "Giclée" prints, and we have used this term in our descriptions to help you identify them.

Framed Prints.

Most of our prints are now available framed in a choice of styles that have been carefully selected to match the artwork.

Framed prints are available in a choice of light or dark coloured mount.

Our dark blue and dark brown coloured mounts have been chosen to both compliment and contrast with the colours and tones in the print to bring out the full impact of the original painting. Because the mount colour has been chosen to match the colours in the print these are not interchangeable.

Light coloured mounts are pale ivory, the ideal colour to match almost any decor.

All our mounts have a stay-white core which will not discolour with age, and are manufactured from lignin free alpha celulose buffered with calcium carbonate to protect the print from attack by airbourne acidic pollutants.

Or frames are finished in dark wood, warm silver, gold or pine. The dark wood moulding is stained mahogany with black outer edge and gold sight edge. The silver gold moulding has a pleasing warm tone with a brushed metallic finish.
Our gold moulding also has a brushed metallic finish whilst the pine is totally natural.

For safety in transit all our frames are fitted with unbreakable acrylic glass and are supplied complete with hanging cord and wall hook.

To ensure safe delivery your framed print will be shipped well protected in bubble wrap inside a strong box. Both the packaging materials and the cost of posting a large and weighty parcel are expensive and constantly increasing. We charge you only what it costs us.

Framed prints are only assembled on receipt of your order so please allow 7 days for delivery.
