Another egg tempera painting!!

Post by sillicus »

Hi Folks, just recently finished painting this egg tempera panel. The panel is the bottom of an old wooden chest-of -draws I broke up. I still have 4 more of these to play with!!! :D :D :D

This was commissioned by a friend to use as a visual aid on school visits. I had fun mixing the pigments in the kitchen, with a rolling pin hovering overhead if I made too much mess!!

Lovely lovely stuff!
Selling?
(I'm not buying, wrong period, merely suggesting you ought to consider it. Real potential there, especially as it was produced under threat of extreme and immediate physical violence!)
Thanks for sharing
