This painting has taken over a year to create. It encompasses many different layers of oil paint. To keep the colours bright is always a challenge; with nice clean clear crisp colours used and mixing of colours on the image itself with layering.
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.
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 on either side and placed into another cardboard covering.
Photo in context is an estimation of size and scale and colouring varies from Computer to computer. But It is as vibrant as the picture depicts.
