Nashville, TN (PressExposure) November 28, 2006 -- Harness House Publishing announced today that its Fine Art Touch website (www.finearttouch.com) now has hand-painted reproductions of famous art works available for purchase.
"We're really thrilled at the response the web site has had since we launched," said art historian and site operator Brenda Harness. "These hand-painted reproductions are something we've researched extensively to be sure that what we offer our patron is something they can be proud to own."
After a patron places an order, Fine Art Touch commissions individual international artists to execute a hand-painted reproduction to suit the patron's request. The entire process from start to finish takes from three to eight weeks to complete, depending on the complexity of the work and environmental conditions which affect the drying process.
"Our artists use traditional methods, and the hardest part of this endeavor is to make the patron understand that with the oil painting process, it takes time to achieve a quality product," said Mrs. Harness.
Upon completion, the hand-painted reproduction is rolled, packaged, and sent to the patron in a sturdy mailing tube.
Every hand-painted oil reproduction is done by an experienced artist. No printing or digital imaging techniques are used. All reproduction oil paintings are hand painted in the traditional way, by real artists who begin with a blank canvas and step by step create a beautiful hand painted oil reproduction.
Available hand-painted reproductions include works by Raphael Sanzio, Titian, Sandro Botticelli, and Melozzo da Forli. Available sizes range from 12" x 16" all the way up to 48" x 72".
In addition to hand-painted reproductions of famous art works, patrons can also commission oil paintings of any image in any style in any size.
