Castle Hill Huddersfield A4 Print

CASTLE HILL - HUDDERSFIELD - WEST YORKSHIRE - UK

INSPIRATION
Castle Hill is a much loved and well known landmark to those living in West Yorkshire. The hilltop has a long and mysterious history and evidence shows that humans have called this area home for over 4000 years. Sitting proudly on top of the shale and sandstone hill is the Grade II listed Victoria Tower which can be seen from many miles away. Surprisingly the tower is relatively new and was built in 1897 to mark Queen Victoria's exceptionally long reign. However the hilltop is littered with remains of banks and ditches dating back from the early Iron Age. It seems like every generation has left its mark on this beautiful area. Today even the overhead electricity cables have been buried to allow for kite flying.

PROCESS
Georgina's prints start off as sketches with pencil and paper, then using various photographs as references the scene is created digitally. The designs are drawings not tracing, so it can take quite a while. The aim is to create a fresh and modern take on the vintage travel posters of the early/mid 20th century. Georgina prints on an Epson printer using Epson Archival paper, using Epson DURABrite Ultra Pigment Ink giving the prints a crisp and vibrant finish. Using high quality inks mean they are more resistant to fading, however be careful hanging your print in direct sunlight.
You will receive an unframed A4 print, ready for any standard A4 sized frame.
