Our Painting Process
We track down objects and measure materials down to a science. Every step of our process diligently followed to bring past objects into present light.
1. Object Hunt
From antique stores to junkyards, we scour forgotten places for the perfect subject matter.
2. Set Up Still Life
We paint from life—not cameras. Strategic lighting and masters' techniques are key to getting things just right.
3. Draw By Hand
All works start with a drawing done in a sketchbook and transferred to a canvas by hand. (Yes, that means no projectors.)
4. Mix, Layer, Repeat
Each painting has at least three layers of paint. But, we don't stop till we get that perfect shade.
5. Let It Air Dry
Patience meets protection. Oil paintings must dry for one month and get protected with a thin layer of clear varnish.
