St Edmund’s, Southwold. Revisiting Rood Screens Suffolk IV – finishing the first Edlyn

Painting-Edlyn1When I last posted about my Edlyn series I had just begun painting the first Edlyn scarf.

Edlyn2With continual reference to my photograph of the Isaiah panel of the rood screen, I began selecting my colour combinations and mixing up the dyes. Then I started painting.

As the colour was added the whole piece began to take shape.

At this stage I felt the painting looked too flat and clean, so with a wide stiff brush I added sweeps of thick, brown resist to give a hint of ageing. Edlyn gold is now finished and awaiting steaming.

      Thank you. It’s all change with the one I am currently painting at the moment as using magenta as a highlight colour. Not sure about it though, we’ll see.

  4. Amazing work. I love seeing how you make it all come together

      Thanks. This one was okay, but the next one is a bit better and the one I am currently working on has been more interesting for me to paint as I have allowed myself to use more colour. Gosh what would our distant forebears who endeavoured to create a colour-rich world think of our contemporary ‘good taste’ for restricted palettes. I think they’d probably be surprised and maybe just a little dismayed too.
