All paintings are on traditionally prepared gesso panels. The images are built up in many layers of egg tempera and completed with glazes of oil colours. Tempera colours are made using pure pigments mixed with egg yolk and water. This is a very old technique and well suited to precise composition. It is proven to survive for centuries with fresh, undiminished colour and the luminosity now assosciated with the work of early renaissance painters. Inspired by the images of these artists I often gild the backgrounds of my compositions to elevate them from the observational to a more devout celebration of the subject matter.
I welcome commissions.
The majority of my paintings are also available as top quality, giclee prints: (archival pigment inks on acid-free paper). The prices for prints range from £60 to £200 depending on the size of the image chosen.
