This is an original oil painting completed on a double primed cotton canvas. The painting has been varnished to lock in the colors and protect it and signed and titled on the back to authenticate. I really enjoyed painting this piece. I used a lot of texture in this composition, yet the final product has a soft feel to it that was a pleasant surprise. I did not use a pallet knife for this one, but I did use deliberate and at times, rough brush strokes.
