Oil Painting Techniques
My oil portraits are detailed and very realistic with a warm and soft entirety, painted with great depth and color harmony. They are painted with techniques and colors which were employed by the old masters, but with my own style and finish.
I'm working many hours behind the easel, applying several thin layers of oil colors. The oil colors I use are from Winsor & Newton and Rembrandt, traditional oil colors of highest quality. I mix my colors with walnut oil in order to make the paint 'buttery' at the same time as it gets thinner, perfect for fine details.
About My Oil Paintings
Only the highest quality linen canvas are used for my painting, stretched to a frame. The stretched canvases are now also gallery wrapped, painted on the edges and can be hung without framing.
Oil portraits are solid, lasts for generations, are easy to maintain and usually becomes the most important part of a room. They are very impressive and gives the ultimate feeling of luxury, no other medium is of higher value then an oil painting.
