David Shepherd Prints

Most of the published works of David Shepherd are photo lithographs; when printed (by a photographic process), these prints are absolutely identical
and there is no added value in any particular number; This misconception arises from the 'old' days when original etchings and lithographs were produced
using a metal or stone plate, where the ink is spread onto the etched plate and a print produced by pressing the paper or canvas against it.
Even with silkscreen prints, the technology is sufficiently advanced that it would be virtually impossible to tell a difference between the first
and the last number of the edition.

In 1992, David began a series called the 'Gold Editions' which were high quality produced silkscreen prints, giving much deeper and richer colours
than a usual photo lithograph print. Published on high quality water colour paper and a low edition run of between 200 to 495 prints.
One silkscreen was published each year from 1992 begining with 'Cheetah'
Africa 1993
Amboseli 1994
The Last Refuge 1995
Mountain Lion 1996
Leopards 1997
The Bandipur Tiger 1998
Storm over Africa 1999
Indian Summer 2000
Portrait of a Tiger (for the millenium)2000
