Frequently asked questions
What do I receive when I buy a print?
Prints are placed in a cellophane bag, sealed and rolled to fit a packaging tube.
We use strong brown cardboard tubes with plastic caps.
We recommend that when you receive your print(s), please remove them from the tube and allow to lay flat ready for you to add your mount and frame of your choosing.
How long will an original oil painting take to arrive?
Because of the higher value of the original oil paintings, to ensure their safe delivery, they require a different type of packaging. Please allow 5 to 7 days for delivery.
What bases are used for original art pieces
There are two main materials I use to paint onto to create my art.
Gesso Coated MDF Artist Panels (6mm thickness)
I use two sizes:
12” x 12” (30cm x 30cm)
16” x 12” (42cm x 30cm)
These are used for most of the wildlife art and some commissioned pieces. In the description of each piece I will mention if the piece has been painted on Panel.
I like to use these boards because you can either have them framed or unframed with hanging wire.
Framed Canvas – 100% cotton and triple primed (15mm or 20mm thickness)
I use all size’s available to purchase.
These are used for my landscape paintings and commissioned pieces. In the description of each piece, I will mention if the piece has been painted on Framed Canvas (Framed meaning the wooden frame used to stretch the canvas over).
I like to use framed canvas because you can either have them framed or unframed with hanging wire. I paint the edge of the canvas as part of the main painting so they can be hung unframed.
If I have used a different material to paint on this will be clearly noted in the artwork description.
