A giclée (pronounced “zhee-clay”) is a very high quality digital print. The word itself is French and refers to a “spray of ink”.The print is created by using state of the art computer technology to reproduce images of excedingly high quality. They are now recognized as a unique art form by galleries and art museums.The difference between this and other prints is that we use twelve archival pigment inks that capture the tones and colours of the original watercolour. This along with top quality etching paper produces exceptional prints that have the same longevity of the original painting.We produce the giclée prints as limited editions and each one is numbered and signed by the artist. They are then flat wrapped in cellophane and backed with stiff card, and completed with a Certificate of Authenticity.They are available as print only or with a double white and ivory mount.
Hear from delighted customers who commissioned original watercolours from Eric. Also our giclée prints have been very well received with 100% positive comments from our clients.
“Enjoyed a very pressure-free wander round looking for a birthday present. Great place – lovely work everywhere, brought back a lot of memories too.” Facebook Review from Anthony Corbett
Thank you very much for the print of The Eden Theatre today. It was great talking to you, wish I had longer to chat. I find your work wonderful and am really happy to talk to someone who enjoys recreating the local scenes.

Special thanks to Mr Eric Thompson for the painting of the Escomb Saxon Church, this gift is very much appreciated.

The print arrived today in perfect condition. We are delighted with it and as we had only seen it on the internet we were not quite sure how the ‘real’ thing would be. It exceeds our expectations and congratulations to your father for ‘capturing’ the day. We were in Durham last June for our son’s Graduation, so this picture will bring back happy memories for us all.

My husband and I would like to thank you for the lovely painting of St.Chad’s college, Durham that Eric completed for us last month. I gave it to Paul for his birthday and he was delighted. It is a beautiful picture and it gives me pleasure every time I look at it.
Thank you so much for the wonderful painting of Framwellgate Bridge. It looks magnificent in the lounge and is there to be admired by all. We enjoyed the exhibition very much and we are sure it was a great success.

First of all thanks for making that beautiful picture of Corbiere affordable for me to buy. We all think its the tops and are very proud of it. If you cannot remember me I was the old dear in a wheelchair whose family brought her to your exhibition. Thank you again

I’ve been trying to find time to wite to you all summer, to let you know how much we all love the beautiful picture of our house. My husband was totally overwhelmed by it and how you’ve managed to capture the “feel” of it, although you’ve never actually seen it. I do hope that one day you will and see what a truly magnificent work of art you’ve created. Many thanks from us all.

I write to sincerely thank you for your lovely painting of Bowes Gate which means a lot to us, our lives are bound up with this place. I will paste a brief history of Bowes Gate onto the back and it will be handed down to our children, you have a wonderful talent for which we thank you.

The painting arrived in perfect condition and we are delighted with it. It will eventually continue on its journey to the other side of Canada where it will be a welcome and happy reminder to our daughter of the little church in which she wed her husband. Thank you for your excellent service and indisputable talent, and we look forward to seeing you on your next visit to this lovely island.
