Portland Brewpub 8×10 Gouache Painting


An early evening scene near my house in Portland, Oregon.  This is the McMenamins Al’s Den on Burnside, at that moment when the sun’s gone down and the lights have just come up in all the buildings.

This is painted with gouache and a small bit of colored pencil. The image is 8×10, painted on illustration board and lightly varnished with cold wax.  This board is about 1/4 inch thick and can be framed like any other painting on panel, in a standard-size floater frame such as these from Ampersand. The cold wax varnish gives it light protection against moisture, so it does not need to be behind glass. However, if you plan to display the painting on a wall exposed to bright sunlight, you should frame it behind UV glass.

Paintings are signed on the back in pencil. Some of my paintings will have minor scuffs, blemishes, or marks around the edges. This won’t be visible when the painting is framed, and is just part of the art-making process.
