New Project

I have been given permission by photographer Kevin Best from Sydney to paint one of his still life compositions and photographs. He is a very talented photographer and makes some of the props in his still life compositions if he is unable to locate what he is looking for. This painting will be done in oil, on 24" x 30" stretched canvas.
