Ken Prescott has been exhibiting his paintings for over 30 years in both solo and group exhibitions throughout Canada and the United States. He achieves his effects by applying acrylic polymer paints directly on paper, using almost any means that will give him the texture he is looking for – brush, knife, sprayer, trowel, roller. The results are mounted on cradled wood panel or stretched canvas using acrylic polymer adhesive. Two coats of acrylic matte varnish permanently seal the work. Check out more of his spectacular results on his beautiful website.
