Fun Paintings by Melody Hawtin

Melody has a range of fun prints of her original paintings.  Prints are produced by husband David working with Melody to ensure the colours are a true representation of the original painting.  Further information below the gallery.

Please view paintings here and follow the link to our shop page if you wish to purchase any of the paintings, but also feel free to contact us with any specific requirements.

Fun pictures are just there to be seen, or not.

Often it is just in the moment.  Florence Goes To Dunster, perhaps you were brought up watching The Magic Roundabout with Florence, Zeberdee  and Dougal the long haired dog.  Well on that day the Yarn Market in Dunster just needed some life, a bit of fun and now it has and brings a smile to Melody whenever she visits this lovely village with it’s castle and old English high street.

Or perhaps the hare chasing and playing with balloons, not a common sight even on Exmoor, but something to smile or laugh about next time you see hares or rabbits in the fields.

Giclée prints of original paintings

Fun prints, are provide on either Hahnemühle fine art paper of canvas. The original artwork is scanned using large format high resolution scanner. Printing is on a Canon IPF8300 large format printer with 12 pigment inks giving a lightfastness of over 100 years.  In general terms this means that in normal room conditions a print will not fade during it’s normal life.

Fun prints on canvas are additionally protected by Hahnemühle Lacquer, this is a totally clear but protective coating that provides some UV protection for the print and some mechanical protection allowing the surface to be wiped clean.

All prints are signed by Melody with a title and with an edition number if appropriate to the print.

Delivery of your artwork

Fine art prints on either paper or canvas will be shipped in a cardboard tube, we recommend that pictures are unwrapped by a framer as it is possible to damage the surface especially with paper prints as the paper will be quite spring like after being in the tube.

Shipping of paintings within the UK is free.  Shipping to other parts of the world will be charged at cost.

Framing Service

Within the UK we can also offer prints framed in a range of mouldings and are happy to advise the cost of this service, similarly we can provide canvas prints stretched on high quality stretcher bars.  We do not offer this as standard on the website as their is always such a wide range of options.  Framed prints can be shipped  within mainland UK.
