Materials I used for this painting
I decided to do this painting on a 16 inch x 12 inch size surface which seemed like the best size for small sized scaly breasted lorikeet. I normally paint my subjects on linen or polycotton canvases, however, this is the only size that I have done all my paintings on Ampersand Museum grade Gessobord. It’s a very smoothly primed surface board with 1.5 inch cradle to support it. Its smooth surface allows for finer details to be rendered beautifully, especially useful for my style of art.
