Working with Baltic Birch Plywood

There’s a strange atmosphere you get when a veil of cloud is just deep enough to obscure the sunset, yet turn everything blue in the early evening. Golden Strand, Dogurt. Oil painting 492mm x 380mm

This year I’ve been developing my own prepared wood panels for my paintings. After a lot of research and experimentation, (thank you Lathams – timber specialists), I’ve settled on higher grade 3mm 3 ply Baltic Birch (low formaldehyde). It’s a fine balance of weight and rigidity that works particularly well for working outdoors. I use 16mm solid core Baltic Birch for bracing the panel, it’s rigid and strong.
