Black and white series…painting old photos

This is a series of paintings using old photos as references. I have always been intrigued by old photos and I love re-telling their story through my brushes.

I use mainly oil paint but sometimes I use acrylics. With oil paint I primarily paint on Birchwood panels and canvas. The Birchwood is so smooth once properly gessoed and really gives a lifelike finish to a painting. Sometimes a client will request canvas…mainly for the classic look of portraiture. Different portraits call for a different substrate…I try to match the panel to the piece to make my clients happy and esthetics is never ruled out!
