This is an unframed original pastel drawing of Peter Cushing
Sherlock Holmes - Hound of the Baskervilles, created for the issue #44 of 'Little Shoppe of Horrors' magazine created by Richard Klemensen.
TITLE: "Elementary, my dear Watson."
The Hound of the Baskervilles is a 1959 British gothic horror mystery film directed by Terence Fisher and produced by Hammer Film Productions. It is based on the novel of the same title by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. It stars Peter Cushing as Sherlock Holmes, Sir Christopher Lee as Sir Henry Baskerville and André Morell as Doctor Watson. It is the first film adaptation of the novel to be filmed in colour.
The artwork is one of my original pastel drawings, and I never repeat the same artwork twice.
The size is 11.6 x 16.5" on 355gsm acid free Canson Paper. I will ship the original by Australia Post shipping and provide a tracking number.
The package comes protected with cardboard, so I make sure that you receive the artwork without any damage. You will also receive a signed and dated certificate of authenticity.
---------------YOUR ORIGINAL ARTWORK.Your new pastel artwork is a hand-painted work of fine art. I use the best archival materials for its creation. If properly taken care of, your painting will last for many lifetimes.
WHAT ARE PASTELS? Pastel is one of the most permanent art mediums in existence. Many pastels painted over 200 years ago are still as bright and fresh as the day they were created. They are actually superior to oils in that they will not crack or darken over time and every bit as permanent. The pastels of Degas and Cassat were created back in the 1800's and still just as beautiful as the day they were completed.
CARING FOR YOUR PASTEL ARTWORK.Keep the work away from moisture. Do not store it in a moist humid place. Moisture can damage the work and encourage mold growth on some types of art. Don't hang an original work of art in a bathroom! I protect my original artworks with a sheet of glassine as a protective covering. Leave it in flat dry place until you are ready to frame it. Never place anything on top of your painting. This can damage a pastel by smearing or leaving an unwanted impression on the surface of the work.
FRAMING YOUR ARTWORK.Professional framing is ALWAYS recommended.Choose a framer who is experienced in working with fine art pastels. A framer who works mostly with posters and printed reproductions or oil paintings may not realize that pastels take special handling. Do not risk the welfare of your pastel in the hands of an inexperienced framer.Pastels are surprisingly durable so don't be afraid to purchase one. They will last every bit as long as an oil painting. If you have any other questions or concerns leave them in the comments for me and I will try to answer them asap.
