Seasonal changes bring about new beginnings, and nothing captures the essence of the seasons better than art. We had the opportunity to work on a project that involved representing all four seasons in one frame. We wanted to do something different with our signature keyline mount design, and that’s when we came up with the idea of a multi-colour design.
We created four different window frames with each window representing a different season. We carefully selected the colours for each window frame to complement the season being represented. The final result was a beautiful combination of colours that perfectly captured the essence of each season.
To complete the project, we framed the art in an oak frame finished with limed wax. The frame acted as a neutral tone that made the colours in the prints stand out even more. We also recommended the use of anti-reflective specialist glass to the client. This type of glass greatly enhances the viewing experience.
Every piece of art we work on at our workshop is unique and deserves to be treated with care and attention to detail. It was a pleasure working on this project and capturing the beauty of the seasons in one frame. Multi-aperture design is a great option that will add a touch of creativity to your home.
