Fortunately or unfortunately, oil painting is quite an expensive thing. But you can leave it as a legacy to your grandchildren)))
To create a painting you need a lot of space. You need light, a stretcher, canvas, brushes and paints, an easel.
Also, painting takes time - the work is carried out in many stages. After each layer I wait for it to dry to continue working, sometimes it can take 7-10 days for the layer to dry, sometimes it happens faster. Of course, in 6 years I have become a faster artist 🙂 But almost any painting still requires weeks.
As a rule, I always have several paintings in the work at the same time. Sometimes I work on 20 paintings at once. And I'm trying not to go crazy.
In order not to work on 50 paintings at the same time and not end up in a mental hospital, I raised the prices.
I know that many people would still like to have my Pepe at home, so I sell canvas prints. But it's not just prints! For each print, I add a few different strokes of oil paint to make the print more alive and unique. In addition, often these strokes are voluminous and from a distance this print is very similar to real oil painting.
