Artist's description:

This technique is so unique! it ships and stores way better then charcoal and yet it is just as expressive and beautiful. It is less delicate in handling and much faster for work in which allows me to keep my prices very reasonable for quality portrait painting.

Technique: "Dry brush". Very thin layer of oil paint applied to watercolor paper without any mediums or solvents. It take many layers to build the painting up gradually. And no, oil doesn't show, stain or ruin the painting overtime. They will last you a lifetime if only you handle them with care and display them under the glass frame.

There is a VIDEO of the painting process available on my YouTube channel
