Description

OIL PAINTING // FOREST STAIR

The painting is made with high quality oil paint. I use strong wooden mdf panels, specifically prepared for oil paint. So the painting will be stable and last very long. At least twenty years without visible colour changes, or craquelé.

- easy to frame
- choose the size you like
- painted on a sturdy wooden panel

TECHNIQUE // When I first design a work it is often painted on thin cardboard, so that I can easily store it. For customers I paint on mdf-panel. Because of the different sizes to choose from I will repaint the work in the size people prefer. Although cardboard is not that bad at all, mdf is preferable though. It is much stronger and it won't shrink or expand that much. Like normal wood would. Especially when a good primer is used on both sides, this will make for one of the most durable painting surfaces available.

I also use only first grade colours with most excellent lightfastness. This will mean that the work will not fade, neither will the colours change over time. Like for example some of Vincent van Gogh's works did, because he didn't have the high quality materials that are available today. Of course an oil painting will slightly yellow as decades pass, as all do. And the buyer should of course also be informed about the conditions to best preserve an oil painting. I can also give you some tips on that.

If you have any further questions, or are in doubt about something, don't hesitate to message me!

The paintings on paper are ready to be sent at any moment. The paintings on wood however, are painted when you order one. Oil paint needs at least one week of drying time before I can safely send it.

Then after posting, it depends where you are located relative to Amsterdam (The Netherlands), how much time the shipping will take.
If kept in good room condition and out of direct sunlight, in theory, oil paintings might last multiple human lifetimes. I use a proper way of grounding panels for oil paint, and only pigments with most excellent lightfastness. Therefore the colours are not likely to change over time.

So the first 30 years nothing big should be visually happening with the painting. After +/- 30 years the painting might start to yellow a bit, and mild craquele might appear (although this cracking of the paint is also not very likely since a very stable panel is used).

These effects are by the way a natural consequence of a painting getting old, and have a certain beauty in themselves.
With most paintings I have different sizes to choose from. This allows also people on a small budget to acquire a work of mine. I will do my best to get most of the detail in even on the smallest sized panels.
