Watercolor on Panel

 

Watercolor on Panel is a technique artist James Kirk and I developed to display       watercolor paintings without glass thus eliminating glare on the artwork.

 

Hot press watercolor paper is stretched and mounted on a cradled panel such as Ampersand Gessobord or Claybord.  When the painting is complete, it is usually sprayed with an archival varnish to seal the painting and provide UVLS protection to reduce light damage.  It is then sealed again with Dorland's Wax that also adds a unique texture to the surface of the painting.  This coating results in protection against dust, moisture, and even water.

 

I prefer to mount a finished painting in a canvas floater frame that is commonly used for paintings on canvas.  The picture below illustrates how a watercolor painting on a panel looks when framed with a canvas floater.   Click on the picture to enlarge it.
