As you may be aware, I enjoy the idea of painting bubbles and liquids and these glasses and champagne seemed to perfectly tie in with that idea. The composition is designed so that it makes you wonder what is going on behind and beyond. I really like how the sparkling wine has appeared warm and fuzzy.
In terms of my application of oil colour, I predominantly use a mixture of both Winsor & Newton Griffin Alkyd and Melanie Cambridge Oils. If a higher pigment is still required I use Michael Harding Oils. I apply between 3-7 layers of oil colour to my work dependent on complexity.
This work has been produced on a raw linen triple clear primed 2cm deep canvas and therefore is ready to hang unframed. The edges are painted the same colour kings blue.
Much care and attention is taken in packaging my work for both national and international delivery. This item will be packaged firstly with an acid-free tissue paper to ensure a protective layer and is then sealed in clear plastic cellophane. All corners are protected with cardboard corner protectors. It is then finished with a triple wrapping of bubble wrap with two cardboard sheets (For Abroad) on either side and placed into another cardboard covering.
