Board mounted photographs is self descriptive. I begin with the image, yours or mine and mount it to a board. The hard surface allows me to pour rather than brush the wax over the photograph. A poured board with have a glass like finish while a brushed surface gives more texture. I will decide which direction should be used based on picture subject or client’s desire. After fixing it to a wooden board. and adding wax, I use my oil paints to give it the painterly effect that is so magical.
