Hanging rocks, Cathedral Quarry
Original Oil Painting by Phil Entwistle
30 x 40cm
These oil paintings are painted on 2mm thick aluminium sheet with a concealed backing frame. The sheet is prepared by the artist with a white gesso eggshell finish which takes both graphite and oil paint with exceptional clarity, without the woven texture of canvas. The crisp, clean edge draws all attention to the painting itself which ‘floats’ some 2cm (1 inch) from the wall.
