Delays ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW TO ORDER FROM THE ARTIST
Many people who contact me for the realization of an artwork ask me what are the delays for its realization.
Moreover, it is also necessary to take into account the commissions in progress.
The realization of an oil painting requires time. A time for the realization in several thin layers of paint. A time for the paint to dry well between each layer and a time for the varnish to dry thoroughly. This can take several months. In addition, there is another factor that we can not do anything about: the weather. Oil paint will dry faster if the weather is nice and warm than if it is humid. The same is true for varnish.
These technical constraints on drying are absolutely mandatory. We can't ignore them.
The deadlines also take into account the current commissions. In principle, I work on several paintings at the same time. I work on one while waiting for another to dry. As you can see, becoming the proud owner of a painting requires patience.
If you want to offer an oil painting for a birthday or other occasion, you must place a commission a few months in advance.
