By the Sword of the Samurai
The 18 x 36 clayboard was painted with mossy green and muted yellow acrylics, aged to create cracks and crevasses, and then slightly detailed with light touches of red enamel for contrast. A similar palette was used to create the gouache underpainting and then a custom-mixed dark green enamel was used for all of the detail work.
The frame was custom made by Lozeau to mimic the design of a Japanese temple and also reference certain elements of the armor with cord woven into the wood to match the patterns in the painting.
The 12 x 18 By the Sword of the Samurai prints are produced with archival ink on glossy paper and are perfect for those of you who prefer to frame your art.
The ready-to-hang By the Sword of the Samurai canvas prints are produced with archival ink on museum-grade, gallery-wrapped canvas and extend 1.25 inches off the wall, so there's no need for a frame. There are several sizes available and each limited-edition giclee is signed and numbered out of only 40 Artist Proofs. Please allow up to three weeks for delivery of canvas prints, as they are custom-built at the time the order is placed.
