Red Telephone Booth - London Canvas Print
Red Telephone Booth - London Canvas Print by Mark Tisdale.
This London canvas print features a classic red telephone booth. In fact, this is a classic piece of canvas art in its own right. After well over a decade, this remains my most popular print. It's also one of my oldest prints that is still available to purchase. You see no matter how many years I've done this professionally, I remain my own worst critic. I can pretty much always look at my work and find something I would change, but not with this one. The lighting and composition in the original photo taken on a long-ago day in London was spot on. And my decision to use a selective color treatment made this an instant classic London artwork.
When I did this years ago, there was no in-camera option to do selective color. No click and go app. I masked this image by hand which makes me feel very old now. My title for this Red Telephone booth canvas print has always been "London Calling" - and London does call me all the time and in particular when I see this view of a Red Telephone Box from near the Embankment tube station in London.
I swear I can hear the city again when I look at this. How about you?

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.
