The Ears of Wheat

Egg tempera and gold leaf on oak.

30cm x 25cm x 1cm

Two mice cross path amongst golden ears of wheat. The ears of wheat have been modelled in pastiglia and the gilded and burnished, so that they glow against the dark, azurite over black background. The two mice are painted in simple earth pigments, to contrast with their rich surroundings.
