Summer garden

"Summer garden"
27x33 cm
Oil on birch panel

I testes out couple of these birch panels made out of veneer and I have to say they are highly durable and can take pretty much any weather conditions.
Surface was first varnished to give it brownish color and then sanded lightly to make it smooth and to remove the texture.
