Maritime Fine Art - Original Paintings of Classic Sailing Yachts and Those Who Sail Them
Painting on polished copper plate is a bit like walking on ice.
The ground is very slippery!
This technique requires a stale palette and plenty of patience but it is well worth the effort.
As soon as the oil touches the surface the copper comes alive and glows.
This allows light to reflect back through the oil paint and render beautiful deep colors.
This is a 10 x 8 I call Morning Coffee based on a photo by Allison Langly of Camben
