'Roasting Tomatoes' is a large and very inspiring oil on canvas painting. It has truly stretched the skills of transparency, colour hues, light, shade, tone and depth. This work sits beautifully in a red tray frame and will make a significant impact in any kitchen or dining area.
In terms of my application of oil colour, I predominantly use a mixture of both Winsor & Newton Griffin Alkyd and Melanie Cambridge Oils. If a higher pigment is still required I use Michael Harding Oils. I apply between 3-7 layers of oil colour to my work dependent on complexity.
I exhibited this piece at the 2016 Surrey Artist of the Year Finals which was held at Farnham's New Ashgate Gallery.
Much care and attention is taken in packaging my work for both national and international delivery. This item will be packaged firstly with an acid-free tissue paper to ensure a protective layer and is then sealed in clear plastic cellophane. All corners are protected with cardboard corner protectors. It is then finished with a triple wrapping of bubble wrap with two cardboard sheets on either side and placed into another cardboard covering.
