This artist proof is a singular digital print of an original watercolour which I painted in Luxor, Egypt. This was the view from my hotel window which was a modest hotel that overlooked this archaeological site in the heart of the city of Luxor. An edition of cards was published at the time. The original watercolour is in a private collection in Toronto. This digital print was one of the first watercolours printed by Roland Schubert in this process in 2006 and is framed in an antique wooden frame acquired from Colour by Schubert’s collection of antique frames.
