My original paintings are created using only high-grade oil paints for these paintings. After the painting is dry, it is varnished with gloss varnish to protect the painting, prevent discolouration and bring out colors. If you do not want it to be varnished, or would like a matte varnish to be applied instead, please let me know.
I use high-quality unstretched canvases, 100% cotton or premium linen. Approximately 5cm or 2 inches blank canvas is left on all sides as margin/border for stretching over wooden frame if desired. The unstretched canvas is rolled up and encased in bubble wrap and a protective mailing tube.
MADE TO ORDER & CUSTOM ORDERS
For made to orders, the painting will be recreated with the same style, colors and quality as seen in the pictures. However, each stroke is unique every time so you will have a unique painting.
After your order, I will strive to finish the painting within 3-7 days and depending on the size and drying time of the oil paints, aim to ship out the finished painting within 1-2 weeks.
I will send you photos of the painting for approval before shipping. You can cancel the order and get a full money refund before shipping if you are not satisfied with the painting.
If you can’t find a size you are looking for in the dropdown list, contact me for a quote with your custom size requirements.
WHY BUY UNSTRETCHED PAINTINGS
The cost of materials for creating artwork on unstretched, frameless canvases is lower compared to canvases stretched over wooden frames.
The cost of handling, packaging and shipping is also lower for unstretched canvases, which can be sent out rolled and packed in a tube. Hence, it is also more sturdy and less prone to damage during shipping.
This also means that you can have it framed locally with your choice of frames, reflecting your personal preferences, tastes, and complementing the decor of your home.
COLORS & TEXTURES
Colors and textures may vary slightly due to camera flash and individual monitor settings. Pictures uploaded may show them in different lighting conditions such as a warm sunny day or a cool cloudy day.
