I use Winsor and Newton, and CRYLA professional acrylic paints. They are all light fast.
I varnish the finished painting with artist quality professional matt finished varnish. I always paint down the sides of a stretched canvas that are ready to hang.
I use Sennelier artists oil pastels, and always seal them before having them framed, so there is no danger of smudging. I also use quality markers.
I use Winsor and Newton, Loxley Gold and Jackson’s canvases and canvas boards. I also use 350/400gsm acrylic paper.
All my framed artwork is done by professional framers. I do not use ‘off the shelf’ mass produced frames.
