Premium oil paintings by Bryan M. McCormick.

Thank you for taking the time to read my story.

What makes my paintings unique? The answer: Quality.

QUALITY MATERIALS

I take great pride in my work, and I only use artist-level, professional supplies for my artwork. I do this to ensure my paintings resist fading, warping, and cracking. I carefully varnish all my oil paintings with Gamvar, so your painting is protected from the elements. Varnish also evens the appearance of the painting, giving it a balanced, glossy finish. I want to ensure that your investment lasts forever.

PACKING AND SHIPPING

I take my shop and my painting very seriously. I strive to have the best pictures and descriptions so you know exactly what you are investing in. I also take shipping and packaging very seriously so your art arrives in pristine condition. All works on paper are carefully placed in a plastic sleeve to protect them from any water during shipping. Works on paper are also shipped in a bend resistant document mailer to ensure they arrive crisp with no bends. I have yet to have a complaint. I also include a hand-written thank you note with every painting. I truly appreciate every time a painting finds a home.

NOTE: Free shipping is available in the US and I have a flat rate for international shipments. For international shipments, you will have to pay a duty imposed by your country upon delivery. This usually means it must be retrieved from the post office, where duties can be paid before you claim the package. Keep an eye out for messages from the post office in your mailbox. If the package is not claimed, it will be returned to me, and another shipping fee will need to be paid before I can ship it again.

PROCESS

Each painting is carefully created through a traditional process. I typically start with a notan sketch to work on the composition of the painting. Once I have worked out the composition, I usually start with a small color study to establish color harmony and values. From there I usually move on to the final painting. I typically start with an underpainting with a neutral color to establish the general composition and layout of the paining. I then start adding color to bring the painting to life. After the painting is complete and dry to the touch, I apply varnish to even out the colors and protect it from the environment.

MEDIUMS

I specialize in archival oil paintings on wood panels. I also work in gouache periodically.

THANK YOU

Frequently asked questions
What is the best way to frame my painting?

Many of my paintings are on 1/8 inch panels, which can fit easily into a standard photo frame found at national retailers. Simply remove the pane of glass and insert the panel. Other paintings are on 1/4 inch panels. These will not fit into a standard photo frame. Instead, they can be framed in a beautiful plein air style frame. You can find them reasonably priced on Jerry’s Artarama online. Panels that are 1 inch thick do not require framing and are ready to hang, and so are 1.5 inch canvas paintings. But you can frame them if you like in floater frames. Ampersand makes quality floater frames. They can be purchased on multiple sites online. Let me know if you need any assistance. Gouache paintings on panels can be framed without glass.

How should I care for my painting?

All my paintings on wood panels and canvas are varnished and sealed to protect them from the environment. I use lightfast pigments, which resist fading, and apply a varnish with UV protection. Despite these protections, it is best to hang your painting out of direct sunlight to make it stay vivid for generations. This doesn’t mean it should be locked in a dark room, but avoiding windows that are always open can be helpful. If for some reason your painting is damaged by smoke, stains, or other elements from the environment, the varnish can be removed and fresh varnish can be applied to restore your painting to its original brilliance. You can take it to a local conservator or contact me and I can help remedy the situation for you.

How do I commission a custom painting based on a photo?

I take select commissions based on subject, size, and availability. If I am available for a commission, I will first create a small study for you at no charge. If you approve of the colors and composition, I will proceed to make the full size painting. I ask for 50% of the cost up front to cover my time and materials. If you approve of the final painting, the remaining balance can be paid and your painting will be shipped. Please contact me if you have questions and wish to discuss pricing.

Do you ship internationally?

Yes indeed. International shipments have a flat shipping rate of $20. But please be advised that your country may charge you an import fee or duty before you can retrieve your painting. Sometimes paintings are kept at the post office until the fee is paid. If it is not paid, the painting will be shipped back to me. Contact your local post office to learn more about fees and how to retrieve your painting. The fees are often not unreasonable. So please don’t let this deter you.
