(CUSTOM ORDER) Bethany was an absolute pleasure to work with, I asked to make something similar to what she had done before but with a slight different colour contrast. And she did a fantastic job. Not only was the painting more than I could of wished for but the service and constant communication with her was excellent. Highly recommended for all these reasons. Thank you Bethany. ~Gabby.

~ ABOUT DIGITAL DOWNLOAD PRINTS.
WHAT ARE DIGITAL PRINTS? Digital download prints are a wonderful way to get your prints FAST without waiting for shipping. My prints are created by using a professional camera or ultra high resolution scans to ensure your are receiving super high quality sharp prints. The prints are sent to you as a JPG in 300dpi . These prints are of my original artworks, illustrations, photography & typographies.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET MY PRINTS? Your prints will come as soon as your payment clears (normally all payments clear instantly). You will receive an email with a download link containing a zip file that will have all of your items.
WILL I RECEIVE ANYTHING IN THE MAIL? No physical items are shipped. Please remember these are digital files only sent to your email address. If you have a special email you would like me to send your files to please make sure to leave a note to seller during checkout.
WHERE CAN I GET THEM PRINTED? You can choose to print your files at home or take them to a local printer like Staples or Walgreens. You can also have your prints done with an online printing service like Shutterfly or Mpix. One of my favorites is currently Shutterfly, I love the MATTE FINISH as it has a satin sheen to it that really makes the prints colors amazing and rich. They also offer great coupons daily, deliver right to your home and best of all if you don't like the print they guarantee their work.
HOW BIG CAN I PRINT? I always say it's not a problem to go up a size with your prints and not lose the sharpness. You may go bigger if you don't mind a bit of grain, this is a personal choice. I actually do not mind a bit of grain because it is abstract art and once it's set into the frame and hung on the wall it will look beautiful!
Please note: All of my listings have the largest files I have available.

~WHAT KIND OF MATERIALS DO YOU USE FOR YOUR ARTWORK?
"The one thing I cannot and will not ever do is compromise the quality of my paintings. The materials I use are truly some of the best available on the market today and allows me to produce Gallery/Museum quality works".
CANVAS - I hand stretch my large paintings using a thick, acid free, triple primed, 100% cotton canvas.
STRETCHER BARS - My stretcher bars are finger spliced, knot free, kiln dried solid pine bars that are VERY strong. The finger splicing method is the same wood design they use to build homes with.
PAINT & VARNISH - I also use some of the best acrylic paints with strong pigments and finally top my paintings with an oil based varnish which provides UV filtering and protects the art from environmental pollutants.
~CAN I VISIT YOUR STUDIO?
I am sorry to say that Sky Whitman studio is currently not open to the public. On occasion I can meet locally for pick ups or to have artwork viewed.
