British Phone Box - Edinburgh Canvas Print by Mark Tisdale.

The subject of this Edinburgh canvas print is a red British phone box. These iconic phone booths are not as common a sight as they once were but they remain beloved by many of us. If you have followed my work at all, you know that my British art frequently includes the classic red telephone box. The red itself is a notable feature as that pop of color is a great choice for decorating! I believe I read once the color was chosen to make them easy to find.

The pair of British phone boxes depicted here are from Edinburgh's Royal Mile. I passed them frequently on my trips to Scotland, but on this particular wet night, the resulting scene was just magical.

As you can see this is a selective color artwork but the original image was very nearly the same color scene. In the dark of night those stones were already quite gray. That definitely made the direction I took this scene in more obvious. The result is a really graphic piece of canvas art with great contrast and a brilliant red that begs to be viewed.

Canvas Prints - Product Information

Stretched canvas prints are a great choice for decorating your home or office. Canvas art is a classic choice that is at home in traditional and modern decor alike.

After the purchase of your canvas print, it is made to your order. The artwork is printed on an acid-free poly/cotton blend canvas. The use of archival inks and substrate means that your canvas art print should last a lifetime without fading or loss of color.

When ordering your print, you have a choice between glossy and matte finishes. While I ordinarily love matte finishes on prints, I do like the sheen that comes on glossy canvas prints. Ultimately I would suggest letting the amount of light in your space guide your choice. In a brightly lit environment, I would lean towards a matte finish to reduce the chance of glare.

Canvas Print Detail Sample

There are three wrap styles to choose from for canvas prints. The mirrored wrap choice mirrors and extends the image to the sides of the canvas wrap (without losing any of the original artwork on the front). The majority of the time I would suggest this is the best choice. The other two options are a solid black wrap or white wrap. You can see a preview of each option when selecting wrap color.

After printing, the canvas is stretched over and secured to a wooden frame of 1.5" by 1.5" stretcher bars. The entire production process takes from 10 to 15 business days. Your artwork will arrive in sturdy packaging. The hanging wire will be attached and all hardware necessary to hang your canvas print will be included. Canvas prints are a great ready-to-hang option.
