Our master artists use a wide array of brushes to accomplish their goal of painting the perfect masterpiece for our customers. We insist that our artists use only the highest quality artist brushes, which are always finely balanced for maximum stroke control. Professional artist brushes are made from a variety of fibers to create different effects. In addition, brush heads are available in almost a limitless selection of sizes and shapes, each ensuring our artists will achieve their desired results. All of the oil paints our artists utilize come together on the artist palette. The artist palette is commonly constructed of very thin wood, designed to be held in the artist's hand while resting on the arm of the artist. In addition to the wood palette, our artists may also use a flat tray that is conveniently located just below the canvas that is being painted. This tray serves a dual purpose as the palette for the oil paints and also a convenient surface to have all the artist brushes close at hand. The artist palette is the surface where all the oil paints are mixed together to achieve the desired colors needed by the artist to complete each masterpiece. Our artists use canvas that is made from high quality, 100% cotton fabric. Cotton canvas is the preferred choice for our artists, because it is a very durable fabric for oil painting. The fine woven cotton canvas is coated with acid-free titanium gesso, which ensures long term life for our museum quality oil paintings. The 100% cotton canvas has both excellent fiber strength for stretching and is also woven to rigid specifications to meet the strict requirements of our master artists. The painting process
