Nine Shades of Grey – an exercise conducted to look for a good frame for for the hugely successful series of paintings by Tom Hoar on S&G Mini-Golden Primed Wild Panels. These paintings are for sale on the Artist Support Pledge scheme.
I decided on three colours to use: White; Farrow and Ball Lamproom Grey and Farrow and Ball Downpipe. These nine frames show nine different combinations of the three colours using the available zones of the Mini-Golden Wild Frame.
Wild frames are available in three sizes: Mini-Golden; Small Square, and Small Golden – each in either Raw timber (FSC® certified, of course) or Traditional Gesso. The chosen frame out of this exercise will be added to the range as a finished option.
