My technique for creating these unique paintings grew out of necessity. I use strong brushwork to get just the effect I am looking for and the Russian Birch panels that I use have the heft to ‘push back’. The grain of the wood panels is taken into consideration when composing the painting so that it becomes an integral part of it and enhances the image. I usually paint oiil over acrylic to get the best of both worlds – the ease and freedom of acrylics for a lively, loose background, then finish with the vibrant beauty of oils.
