Commissioned Work for Louise F.
Egg tempera on linen laid onto board
60 x 30 cm
For this painting I had to perfect my process for making the panels that I paint onto. The linen must be pre-shrunk and a minimum of 18mm thick plywood is needed to avoid warping. This was my third attempt, painted from a photo supplied by Louise. The details are very small and tested my eyesight and patience. The painting is much-loved by her family, but further cousins have since been added, so perhaps another one is needed? ;-)
