- Collectors and interested art appreciators have informed
me that understanding the Surface Textures of Paintings is a
shortcoming of viewing an artwork on-line. I hope these photos
of the surface of one of my paintings will help show the general
surface textures of my paintings.
- The smooth finely blended surfaces of my oil paintings quite
similar to Dutch Masters and Hudson River paintings regarding
the textures of the painted surfaces. I make my own medium which
is the basic Mastic, Beeswax, and Oil, a formula used for centuries.
I do not use lead in my medium. I buff out the lint and particulate
from the painting surface without altering the surface texture
of the artwork and apply a very thin coat of varnish to protect
the painting without changing the surface sheen of the painting.
