All the calligraphy shown in the Gallery opposite was individually hand-lettered by Duncan, who also snapped the photographic backgrounds.


Many of the watercolour backgrounds were painted by his daughter, Lorraine.


Please note that all of the artwork featured in the Gallery is created digitally. After hand-lettering all the text in black ink, Duncan scans the resultant calligraphy at high resolution into Adobe Photoshop on his Mac. After creating the digital artwork on-screen, he prints it on his HP Photosmart Pro colour printer using Vivera inks and specialist archival paper.


The subsequent prints have amazing depth of colour, with the added bonus of being waterproof, and are guaranteed to remain lightfast for 200 years.
