PRACTICAL PAINTING AND ARCHIVAL REFERENCES
When painting an inn sign the studio artist would try to keep both sides of the sign 'on the go' as this was the preferred method. An essential tool of the studio was an elaborately weighted easel that allowed the artist good vertical movement and a 360º swivel.
When completed the sign was photographed in-house using 35mm Ektachrome slide film. Two copies were taken, one for archival reference and the other for possible publication requests/marketing. A third would be taken if the artist wanted a personal copy, which the artist paid for. All the images in this website are the result of personal purchases.
