Do You Varnish Your Paintings?
Yes, all my paintings are varnished using Gamvar from Gamblin. You can check out my post about varnishing here, if you’d like to learn more about why and how I varnish my paintings: Varnishing Oil Paintings with Gamblin Gamvar
How long does it take you to do a landscape painting?
Depending upon the size and complexity involved, a landscape can take anywhere between 1 to 3 weeks.
Can I purchase a landscape that you have already painted?
Absolutely. You can view paintings I have for sale on my Etsy site here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/schaeferart
Do you paint landscapes outside of Northern California?
Rarely. I tend to paint from life in order to capture the mood and aura of a place and this is difficult to do when working only from photographs, especially if I’ve never before visited the location. But I am open to traveling if you desired a particular location or scene.
