Fine Art Reproductions

About the Design, Fine Art Painting Materials and Reproduction Process

The original painting is designed and painted by Susie Hambleton for Kahuna Bay using the best watercolours and premium professional colours by Windsor and Newton, watercolour pencils and charcoal as well as standard pencil.  

Susie paints the originals on wonderful quality 100% cotton mould made watercolour paper. 

Windsor and Newton watercolours were introduced in the 1830's. 

French or Italian papers by Arches or Artistico is what Susie loves to work with.

The paintings are then professionally photographed and prepared locally for fine art reproduction in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. 

The fine art reproductions are of Susie's original work, on premium archival paper and/or canvas is designed to last 100 years. The exception to this is our hotel and commercial range designed to last 30 years.
