I use Arches watercolor paper, either 140# or 300#. I also use professional grade, lightfast paints. The matting is archival quality and I typically use an accented color from the painting for the inner mat and white or off-white for the outer mat. Sometimes I use a white on white double mat. The frames are various styles of stained wood. I can also provide custom mat colors and frame styles upon request. See the photos below for examples of the finished art pieces that I have for sale in the Paintings Gallery.
