More Info

This simple four tone drawing is a preparatory sketch for a color painting. Since it was "just a sketch," it was supposed to be a throwaway, so I didn't bother with using my usual archival materials. If I'd known it would turn out so well, I wouldn't have used common kraft paper. Unlike the acid-free surfaces I usually use, kraft paper has some acids in it. So, it's not going to last hundreds of years, like an oil on canvas. But you might get a good 20 years or more out of it before it starts to stain. I'm offering it as discount price.

Payment by Paypal only.

If you require shipping outside the US: It's hard to predict when an international package will arrive at its destination. I've shipped paintings to European countries that arrived in as little as three days, and as long as two months, with ten days being about the average. I ship promptly using an expedited US Postal service (Priority Mail), which gets it to the receiving country quickly. Once it enters the receiving country, it becomes the responsibility of the local delivery service (who may or may not provide tracking), and that country's Customs office. If a package is delayed, it's usually because it's hung up in Customs.
