This artistic creation is called “FLOUTIN with DISORDER” a series of Caribbean paintings by Jonathan Nurmi Frank.

  The first oil on canvas of Jonathan's is in the dimensions of 36 inches wide by 30 inches high. This part of the project was composed in 2009 and completed October of 2015. The composition is my contemporary interpretation of the nautical decor genre with a folk twist. The technique is in the traditional Baroque Italian style with the famous Burnt Sienna under-painting. The philosophy behind this style is very simple. The sketch is applied to the canvas by tracing the image on tracing paper with charcoal then making an imprint directly on the canvas. The charcoal outline must be very light so as not to show threw the paint. In next stage the under-painting is produced in the direct painting method. This stage is the foundation of tones that the colored layers will be directly applied to. Once we have a dry under painting we can begin washing layers of thin color over them. An artist uses a mixture of turpentine and Dammar varnish to achieve a variety of illusions. Many different formulas have been implemented over the centuries. To embrace this style one must understand the transparent nature of the mediums and the oil paints. Proper adhesion of the layers can only occur in a dry warm environment.
