Painting of Scarlet Macaws in hemp oil

Kenyon Gibson's macaw painting

Painting of Scarlet Macaws (Ara macao).

I have talked on this blog before about hemp as a drying oil, it is not used
much today but here is an example of  Scarlet Macaws I painted this year with hemp oil. See the clarity of such a medium. It is not used only because it is so much more expensive than linseed (flax) oil - which could be changed if we were allowed to grow more of it.
