Oil on Cradled Birchwood Panel
6 x 8 x 3/4 inches

Available as a Print

"Pierrot With Eye Full of Sky" was painted in the early days of 2020.


The cradled birchwood panel was sized on all sides using an acrylic polymer base (GAC-100).  Gamblin Oil Ground was then thinly applied and allowed to dry over the course of several layers.

From Gamblin:

"Gamblin Oil Painting Ground makes a strong, bright, non-absorbent foundation for oil paintings. Gamblin Ground is formulated from alkyd resin, titanium dioxide, and calcium carbonate – titanium dioxide gives opacity, while calcium carbonate gives tooth for strong adhesion. 

Gamblin Ground makes a brighter and less-absorbent ground layer compared to acrylic gesso primers, meaning that the oil paint layers on top will better retain their color saturation. The lower absorbency also allows for reductive painting techniques when painters need to wipe back into the white of their Ground. "

The smooth, white surface of the oil ground shows through the blue and brown layers, becoming the powdered face and clean white collar of Pierrot.

This painting was made with longevity in mind, and it is my hope that the careful treatment of wood, ground, and paint will keep it in good condition for years to come.

Digital images of a piece vary from monitor to monitor, and the colors as they appear on your screen may not be exact to real life. I hope the range provided gives some idea as to the color of this piece.
