    I think the big galleries and some museums have an online catalogue from which you can order prints in the required size.

    A quick idle Google throws up a few places that do prints (on top of art.co.uk)

    Thanks, have you had any prints done? Just getting an idea of print quality, delivery etc.

    I've only had one done by Art of Brands which was big and expensive but good. Others I have had are by Guy Allen prints which have come direct from the artist and are very good (as you'd hope).

    I think, like everything, you mostly get what you pay for (with a law of diminishing returns)

    Guy Allen is great. He seems to love doing the Alfa Giulia which is the car I race - so I have a few and is a good source of birthday present ideas. He also does some cycling ones. But all of those 60's and 70's cars prints he does are really good.

    Went with this lot in the end.

    Quite happy with print and frame quality and value for money.

    Indeed. I love a seascape, particularly a stormy dramatic one.

    Hope you're purchasing this art so the whole of society can see it, rather than for your private collection...

    My daughter is a poor, struggling illustrator. Some of her work if you are interested.

    Very nice, they look very good indeed. Although I have very limited knowledge of this style, so I don't know what I am talking about, as usual.

    Thanks. She's just completed one of a Challenger 2 tank emerging from a church. Don't ask me about the inspiration. Originals are all done using pencil/graphite. Then scanned, cleaned and tones/contrasts adjusted. Sometimes they are then colured. As in the top illustration with whiskey glass and books. The middle drawing is a plague doctor attending patient and the last one is an illustration from a passage in the Young James Bond series of books by Charlie Higson (ex The Fast Show, now Broadchurch).

    She just needs to get her first break/commission and then I think she'll be on her way.
