Galerie Kostecki

Technik

The artist uses exclusively historic oil painting techniques which go back to the 16th century. In this base Tomasz Kostecki has further elaborated his own oil painting techniques and accentuated it to perfektion. This painting process is long and intricate. The artist applies a a careful and unmistakingly detailed drawing on a thoroughly primed canvas. He then applicates the colours in the alla-prima technique or in the translucent technique. Very thin layers are continually applied which are either transparent or using very little paint as such, that the surface is almost smooth with hardly any noticeable traces of brushstrokes
