Canvas Printing

Printing on canvas is incredibly versatile and a great way to create a ready-to-hang image or artwork. Every canvas that we print  is protected with a UV coated acrylic finish to guard the print from dust, moisture and fading. Do you want your canvas stretched on bars or non-stretched? Framed or unframed? Customize the work to make it truly your own.

Stretching

We offer two different ways to create your art print on canvas as a ready to hang work of art; museum wrap (museum stretching) and gallery wrap (gallery stretching). Both canvas wrap options utilize museum quality stretcher bars providing you with a finished work. On both of our wrap choices we stretch the canvas around specialized wood bars and securely staple the canvas to the back. After the canvas is stretched, you can choose to frame the wrapped canvas with one of our specialized custom frames, or leave it exactly as is. For more information contact us.

Museum Wrap
Choosing the museum wrap option makes the entire image viewable while looking at it straight on; no part of the image is lost around the stretched edge. With our museum wrap option, we stretch the canvas around wood stretcher bars and leave a white border on the edges of the stretched canvas. If there are vital parts of the image near the edge of your art, museum wrap is the way to go.

Gallery Wrap

The gallery wrap option stretches the image around the entire width of the stretcher bars, making a portion of the image viewable from the sides. For our gallery wrap canvases, we use wood stretcher bars, so expect to lose at least an inch of the image on each side when viewing it straight on. Keep in mind that anything close to the edge of your art will be folded over the sides, so make sure to choose this option only if vital parts of the image are not close to the edge.

Photography Information

Art of Photography

Art of PhotographyPhotography is an amazing art form. A photograph album is a catalogue of life's history as seen through the camera. People, animals, nature, holidays, celebrations and even disasters are captured instantly and recorded as part of history. It is through the powerful presentations of photography that we better understand the progression of time and life. Hampton Photo Arts has over twenty years of experience working with photographers as they seek to capture and preserve the history of families and communities.

When families get together, both children and adults love to look through photograph albums. They enjoy seeing the childhood photos of older family members and compare themselves to ancestors who lived a hundred or more years ago. Photos are among the most important treasures of every family. They should not be faded and dull. They contain the smiles, tears and emotions of generations. The staff members at Hampton Photo Arts display excellence in the art of photography reproduction. They work with the highest quality materials. They know how to create family memories that will be just as beautiful one hundred years from now as they are today.

Learning to Paint with Watercolors

By Cindy Tabacchi

ImageWatercolor is an easy, fun medium for creating art.  Color theory, composition and design can be explored freely with watercolor paint, paper, and brushes.  Several techniques may be used with watercolors for varying effects including painting wet on wet, wet on dry, layering washes, and more.

Watercolor paper comes in cold press, hot press, and rough.  Rough paper has the most texture, and its hills and valleys can result in interesting effects when paint is added.  Hot press is the smoothest and has the finest texture.  Cold press has a moderate amount of texture and is the paper most commonly chosen by watercolor artists.

Watercolor paper comes in several weights ranging from 90 lb. to 300 lb. based on the pounds per ream of paper.  Most artists prefer to use at least 140 lb. paper.  Papers vary somewhat between manufacturers, so sampling different papers is advisable.  Paper can be purchased in pads, in blocks or in large sheets.  The large sheets are usually the most economical and can be torn into whatever size is desired.
