Frequently Asked Questions
How do I purchase an original painting? Please   contact   me   if   you   are   interested   in   purchasing   an   original   painting.    If   the   painting   is   available  you   can   pay   either   by   bank   transfer   (prefered),   credit   /debit   card,   personal   cheque   or   by   instalment. Gallery   prices   do   not   include   shipping.   This   is   dependent   upon   the   size,   weight   and   destination   of   the piece in question and is  individually calculated once you have decided to buy.   All paintings are dispatched with full insurance and handled by a professional courier. If you are interested in a painting that is currently in my ON THE EASEL gallery please contact me.   Any   such   painting   can   be   reserved    for   you   until   it   is   finished   .   Please   be   assured   that   you   are   not obliged to buy if you take this option. All my paintings are offered framed (unless stated otherwise) and this is included in the price.
How do I look after my original painting? As   with   prints   your   oil   painting   will   do   best   in   a   moderately   heated   and   stable   environment.   Extreme heat   can   cause   the   properties   of   many   art   materials   to   change.   For   example,   sudden   shifts   between   hot and   cold   can   cause   oil   on   canvas   to   expand   and   contract,   cracking   the   paint   slightly   in   the   process. Keeping the temperature reasonably stable eliminates this cracking. Oils painted on board are more stable but humid or damp conditions should still be avoided.
What is a giclee print? Printed artwork made using a specialized ink spray process ( giclee is a French term meaning "to spray").  Giclee prints typically provide sharper images and better colour definition. Both the ink and archival paper onto which the giclee image is transferred can offer up to 70 years light-fastness and UV-resistance under appropriate display conditions. We produce our own giclee prints using an Epson large format printer and genuine Epson Ultrachrome inks.
What is a mounted print? My   prints   are   currently   sold   either   unmounted   and   wrapped   or   mounted   and   wrapped.    A   mounted   print  has   a   suitably   coloured   board   presentation   mount   and   is   ready   to   frame.    These   are   usually   bought   as personal   presents   or   gifts.    If   you   are   planning   to   have   the   print   framed   yourself   I   suggest   that   you purchase an unmounted print as this will be provided by your framer.

What is a limited edition print? A   maximum   number   of   a   particular   print   that   will   ever   be   created. The   edition   size   is   fixed   before   printing and   once   an   edition   has   sold   out   no   more   will   be   produced.   Limited   Edition   prints   are   made   and numbered   in   succession   with   the   individual   number   and   edition   size   usually   being   recorded   together such   as   12/250   (print   number   12   out   of   an   edition   size   of   250).   Typically   a   Limited   Edition   Print   will   not be reproduced in any other printed format that could degrade it's value (such as a greetings card). It is, however, permissible to use the image in a book or in the Artist's own promotional literature. Unlike Limited Edition Prints open editions are not numbered and there is no limit to the number issued.
Do you sell framed prints? Unfortunately we are unable to offer framed prints at this time due to the inherently fragile nature of glazed frames and the prohibitive costs involved in transporting them.
Are there any discounts for larger orders? If you are a private customer (not a business) and you intend to purchase five or more prints please give me a ring.  I offer a 10% discount on these orders (exclusive of postage). My current cart provider does not support this discount option but I do hope that in the future it will be added automatically at the checkout stage.
Do you sell prints wholesale? If you are a business customer (for example an angling store or gallery), prints can be purchased wholesale at a 50% discount on the retail price (plus postage). There is a minimum order of 5 prints.
How do I purchase a print? If   you   are   paying   by   credit   or   debit   card    simply   click   on   the ADD TO   CART   button.    A   window   will   open displaying   your   basket   which   you   can   add   to   if   you   so   wish.   If   you   wish   to   pay   by   bank   transfer,   paypal or   cheque please   contact   me   either   by   e-mail   or   telephone   for   more   details.      More   information   can   be found in my ORDERING section (see bottom of page)
What payment options are there? You   can   pay   by   bank   transfer,   paypal,   credit   card,   debit   card   or   a   personal   cheque   drawn   on   a   UK bank.   If   you   are   interested   in   buying   an   original   painting   and   would   like   to   pay   by   instalment   please contact me for details.
How do I look after my print? In   general   your   prints   and   watercolours   will   do   best   in   a   moderately   heated,   stable   environment. Always   hang   your   artwork   out   of   direct   sunlight   as   sunlight   is   the   main   culprit   in   the   degradation   of both   watercolour   paintings   and   printed   images.   If   you   live   in   a   very   humid   region   using   air-conditioning or a dehumidifier can help to preserve your artwork.
What is copyright? Copyright   gives   an   automatic   right   to   exclusive   ownership   of   artistic   effort   and   this   right   is   respected worldwide   via   international   conventions.   In   other   words,   copyright   belongs   exclusively   to   the   original artist,   in   this   case,   David   Miller.    Under   current   UK   law   protection   copyright   exists   for   the   life   of   the artist plus a further 70 years. Copyright   can   be   transferred   from   one   party   to   another   but   this   generally    involves   a   limited   use   of   the work:   for   example,   a   print   or   a   greetings   card   design   -    transfer   of   copyright   does   not   give   the   buyer the right to use the purchased image in any other format  other than the one agreed.  If   you   buy   an   original   painting   this   does   not   mean   that   you   have   also   bought   the   copyright   on   that image. This always remains with the artist. Copyright   infringement   carries   very   heavy   penalties   and   the   onus   is   on   the   defendant   to   prove   that   he did not copy if he has had the opportunity to do so.    If   you   wish   to   reproduce   all   or   part   of   an   artwork   and   you   are   not   absolutely   sure   that   you   have   the right to do so, you must obtain written permission from the original artist before proceeding.
