Holyrood Palace - Edinburgh Canvas Print
The subject of this Edinburgh canvas print is the beautiful architecture of Holyrood Palace at the foot of the Royal Mile. This is the Queen's official residence in Scotland. She spends a week at the beginning of each summer hosting events at what is officially the "Palace of Holyroodhouse." Parts of the old palace date to the 16th century but the bulk of the Neoclassical architecture is from a 17th century renovation. Like many royal palaces it started as an abbey, the ruins of which are visible on the left side of this artwork.
This Holyrood Palace canvas art print is based on a photo from my second visit to the beautiful city of Edinburgh. It was actually my first visit to Holyrood Palace which I had only seen through the gates my first time there. It shouldn't be a surprise to anyone, but it did actually rain while I was there that day. In fact, it poured most of the time I was inside the palace and as I was leaving, the skies were clearing and the palace was reflecting in the puddles. I thought it was a beautiful contrast, the wet ground and the blue skies. I love artwork that shows rain and reflections as you'll see looking through my work, but amazing architecture reflecting is really the icing on the proverbial cake.

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.
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.
