I know I have written about hand painted frames before but it is such a perfect way to compliment or match a tone in a picture that I thought it worthy of another mention. I seem to be quite often washing out my brushes and so I guess that hand painted frames are becoming somewhat of a speciality for us. This time the frames that were painted were used as inner slips for oil paintings by the war artist Gordon Rushmer. Here are some initial samples that I painted to see if the colours used were sympathetic with the tones in Gordon's oils.
The term "The distressed look" was the brief and I think we have achieved that this time. I will pop another blog up when I have finished the frames. As the frames are hand painted you really will be receiving a bespoke picture frame and you are extremely unlikely to see your picture frame on anyone else's wall.
