A Modified Easel and Herds of Caribou

SCI Foundation’s 2014 Conservation Artist of the Year, Linda Besse, has been hard at work on her caribou painting. And, we are excited to follow the progress of this impressive artwork.


As you can see in the image above, she has sketched and started to seal her work.

Linda works exclusively in oil, and likes painting on hand-gessoed untempered hardboard. Working with the paints mostly wet-on-wet to get the perfect look. However, working on such a large canvas has its challenges. See how she has had to modify her usual setup, and more about the beginnings of her artistic process on this massive endeavor on her blog.

Follow all the updates on Linda’s progress here, on her blog, and on the SCI Foundation website.
