Originally I learned how to paint with oil paints. One year my sister gave me a calendar of watercolor paintings. It intrigued me and I decided to give watercolors a try.
Now I enjoy painting with either oils or watercolors. There is a rich classic beauty in oil paintings and a freedom with watercolor paintings.
My beautiful oil paintings usually are painted on stretched archival canvas or archival art panels, as noted.
The "oil" paintings use high quality pigments bound with alkyd resin. Alkyd paintings are referred to as oil paintings.
Alkyds are extremely durable and they look exactly like oil paintings. Alkyds have been my favorites for around thirty years and I am very pleased with the media.
Most of my watercolor original paintings for sale are on Aquabord. (This is the correct spelling.) It is a hardboard with an archival Kaolin clay applied to the hardboard.
When the painting is dry, I apply several coats of a protective UV spray. Then the painting should be framed without glass.
Watercolor paintings on watercolor paper need to be matted and framed under glass.
