About

A stunning modern British landscape painted in egg tempera by the acclaimed painter James Lynch. The painting depicts the peaceful rolling hills of the English countryside, with sunlight breaking through the stormy clouds. The present painting is an excellent example of Lynch's expert handling of the ancient medium of egg tempera (his favoured medium). Signed and dated by the artist to the lower right and excellently presented in a modern wooden frame. On wove. James Lynch is a Somerset based painter who has exhibited widely in the South West of England and London. His body of work consists of the landscapes and wildlife around Wiltshire and Somerset. His work is highly collectable and his use of egg tempera conveys his dedication to his art. Lynch says of his painting process: "I make my own gesso ground from rabbit skin glue and whiting according to a traditional recipe, painting several layers of the creamy paste onto a wood panel as the support for the painting. I mix my own paint from the raw ground pigments, egg yolk and water and adjust the watery paint over the course of the painting, moving from a 'leaner' mix with less yolk in the water in the early stages of the painting, to a 'fatter' mix with a little more yolk in the later stages. I use eggs from the hens I keep below my studio. Egg tempera is applied in thin layers and each painting is the result of scores of glazes, building up the brilliant richness of colour slowly. The paint glazes are translucent and allow light to bounce back from the underlying white gesso ground, and egg tempera paintings have a unique glow. Egg tempera is very light-fast and does not darken and yellow over time as oil paintings do. Although egg tempera fell out of favour in the late Renaissance, it was rediscovered by later artists such as William Blake and the Pre-Raphaelites. It’s nice to know I am continuing an ancient painting tradition." 26 x 38.5cm (10.2" x 15.2") Framed Size: 45.5 x 56cm (17.9" x 22")
