247 Creative is delighted to announce that artist-afloat.com has gone live! The site was commissioned by Chichester-based artist Shirley Faure to promote her new book Afloat on the Dutch waterways, which chronicles her journey through the canals of Holland and Belgium on board a Linssen Sturdy 410 motor yacht.
The book is liberally illustrated with over 300 of Shirley’s superb sketches and watercolours – these are further punctuated with entertaining and enlightening observations and anecdotes about the rich history, architecture, wildlife, and of course, nautical pursuits in this most magical area of northern Europe.
The site has been built with best practices for usability and accessibility in mind, and as such features fully W3C valid XHTML and CSS, and Flash-based galleries of Shirley’s artwork – we have also added a facility for visitors to buy copies of the book online, and checkout using the PayPal system.
We wish Shirley the very best of luck with the launch of her fine book, and every success with her continued artistic pursuits.
