Wheat, Nest, Stone

Color Photograph

Created by Randall G Dana
Copper is glowing in the background, scratched and burned for color and depth. The wheat in transition from soft greens to golden. A nest and egg shaped stone rest and reflect on a sheet of glass. Wheat below the glass as well adds to the complexity of the image. The image is captured using color negative film with a large format camera in the artist's natural light studio. The 4" x 5" negative allows for remarkable detail and clarity in the final print, highlighting painterly strokes of color and texture. The viewer is treated to the intricate structure of the wheat and the delicate soft weave of the nest.

The processed film is scanned by the artist to create a digital file. He then mimics traditional techniques in the now digital darkroom to maximize the captured image and prepare it for printing. Printing is done by the artist using an Epson Fine Art printer. Archival pigment inks on 100% cotton, acid-free, fine-art paper produce prints that will be both beautiful and colorfast well into the next century. Each print is signed and numbered on the white border below the image. Additionally a title label will ship with your photograph. This label can be affixed to the back of the framed piece and includes the title, year of creation, edition number, and the artist's name and signature.

This Large size is an edition of 50. The medium size is a separate edition of 100. All photographs will be in a protective plastic sleeve. The fine art print will ship in a tube and will be firmly rolled around an inner tube for secure shipping. Once removed from the tube the print must be handled with great care to avoid denting, crimping, or scuffing the surface. Always handle the print with two hands. Proper mounting, matting, and framing are important to preserve the image and maximizing your years of enjoyment.
