Exmoor has it all, not only the stunning landscape and coastline but plenty of wildlife roams freely on the moor. Red Stag are popular all year round, but even more so in the rutting season when stag can be seen competing for large herds of deer. The Red Stag on Exmoor is the largest wildlife in Britain, with the longer season and milder climate they are bigger than those found in Scotland.
Other wildlife on Exmoor includes the Exmoor Pony, a particularly hardy breed that survives the harsh winters and can eat nearly anything.

Giclée prints of original paintings
Wildlife 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.
Wildlife 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.
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.
