In order to speed up the time it takes to paint in oil, I complete the under-painting in acrylic. This enables me to get your portrait to you faster.
I love to paint the upper layers in oil as it allows the colours to blend together and has a beautiful lush finish. Allow 2-3 weeks after completion for the painting to dry before it can be safely posted.
I paint on triple primed 380gsm cotton primed canvas stretched on a 3.8cm profile. (Wide edges) These edges are masked off during painting so the sides remain crisp and white and look fab without a frame, but if you prefer, I can paint the edges the same colour as the background.
All materials are archival quality and will give you many years of delight.
All paintings are signed on the front by me and titled on the back. The paintings come with their own hanging cord and are ready to hang.
