OIL ON COPPER

[easyrotator]erc_55_1472847491[/easyrotator]

Oxidizing (patina reaction) on copper is an exciting adventure. Much of the image is created using only acidic solutions and varnish. Sealing the surface locks the appearance in time. Traditional alla prima oil painting finishes the work. Sometimes there is a little paint, sometimes a lot. The buttery richness of oil paint is unparalleled. Sometimes there is the joy of knifing it on bravura style.
