The Willows Again

from 99.00

This was another attempt to paint the willow trees at the nearby lake. I was experimenting with using egg tempera at the time and decided to try it on this scene. It is made using the yolk of the egg as a binder which gives the surface a lovely matt quality. This is how the very earliest artists used to paint their frescos on church walls… and many are still as good today as the day they painted them. Good things, eggs.

John paints surroundings here in Boynovtsi, Bulgaria. There is so much to paint here that sometimes I don’t know what to do next. We have so many fabulous barns here, all in a various states of disrepair , we have trees and rivers , we have donkeys and carts, we have proper seasons (!).. and then there’s some characters amongst the locals who like to have their portrait painted
