These outdoor murals are painted on birch panels with acrylic paint. They are primed with at least two to three layers of primer and finished with at least two to three layers of outdoor urethane that is UV and water repellent. The largest mural in the gallery is 6 ‘ x 8’ and has been outdoors for the past five years. It has suffered hail, rain, sleet and snow in Toronto’s wonderful weather not to mention oppressively hot and humid days. All things considered it has aged well with only minor touchups required.
When using colors to recreate a general harmony of tones in nature, one loses it by painfully exact imitation. One keeps it by recreating in an equivalent color range, and that may not be exactly, or far from exactly, like the model. “
— Vincent Van Gogh
