Oil paint on stretched canvas created using only the finest quality materials
The Stretchers: Designed, created and built by the artist, this unique ‘Nature’s Secret’ stretcher is hand drawn and carved with a multi-layered, ridged edge for added effect. The entire stretcher has a convex back which protrudes from the wall.
The Wooden Hanging Structure: Designed by the artist to augment the narrative, this sculptural element is created from Asian Padauk wood (not endangered-we would never do that!) by Furniture maker Robert Post. Treated with UV color protectant, Waterlox Varnish, and finished with the finest paste wax. It’s luster compares to that of fine furniture. 4 attach points at the corners for secure hanging.
The Paint: ‘Old Holland Classic Oil Colours’ oil paint for the richest, most vibrant color
The Oil: ‘Chelsea Classical Studio’ Clarified Pale Cold Pressed Walnut Oil. This natural, pale, professional-quality walnut oil will not darken, and provides brighter and richer tones and hues in oil colors. This magnificent oil was mentioned many times as a favored painting medium in the writings of Leonardo DaVinci!
