Painting on panels

Oct 6, 2009

I started working on panels this past summer.  I paint with palette knives so I like the fact that panels have no give, unlike traditional stretched canvases. 

Here's a recent painting that I did on a panel with a canvas texture.

My mixed media works are on birch panels.  Art Media sells birch panels that are sourced locally. Plywerk, another Portland-based company, also sells blank panels to artists and photographers.  The bamboo and maple boards are made from sustainable harvested wood, and they come with keyholes on the back for easy hanging. 

A recent visit to the Plywerk studio.
