Framed Prints of the Loire Chateaux

I am planning to start selling my work in nicely made museum quality frames. To test possibilities, I thought I would first visualize a Loire chateaux series of framed French Chateau images processed in sepia. To me these images work well with an aged photo technique because the structures themselves are about 400 to 500 years old. Wanting a frame that complements the images, I built virtual prototypes in Photoshop from a photo of a frame that adorns an oil painting in my collection. They would be somewhat pricy to have made, but I like the way the gold leaf liner sets off the image and how the wood provides richness to the overall impression of the scene. Now to meet with the frame maker and get them built!

  1. Beautiful frames and shots Lee – really brings out the character and grandeur of the architecture. That being said, I can only afford the virtual prototype 🙂

    So beautiful and anyone would be proud to own these pieces as you’ve shown them, Lee. I love that Chateau Azay…I don’t remember seeing it earlier.

    They look really nice man. I want to see them printed and framed and shots taken of them on the wall 🙂

    These look fantastic in sepia. Suits the subjects very well. Good luck with sales.

  5. You are one incredible artist there, Lee, what a FABULOUS set of images! Loved each and every one of them!
