New bird paintings in oil paint on stretched linen are coming soon! Here are photos of a couple with the first layer down. I do several layers to give them a rich and deep effect. The Belgian linen costs five times the price of premium cotton canvas. But it's extremely archival with a beautiful weave and fine texture. I really love it and think you will too. After the first layer dries in a few days, I will add the next layer. Stay tuned for more pictures and available paintings soon.
