Default Zowie! Details?

Enrico, your paintings are very accomplished. Your still life paintings have a direct sensibility and show that you are very aware of the drama of light.

If you could post some detail shots and briefly describe your working process, I'd be grateful, and I'm sure some others would appreciate it, too. Your modeling is so smooth, I have to assume you're using an egg-oil emulsion, or are finishing with oil glazes?

I'd also enjoy learning these paintings' dimensions.

the painting measure cm 40 x50 with a egg tempera to the red of egg and pigments."as described by cennino cennini" The job begins with a complete sketch and well done follows then a monochrome and after use the only transparent colors without white.
Later I start to insert the covering colors.
Very important when in last the dark colors strengthen him toward the clear ones it is to return from the clear ones toward the dark color for last.
After som trasparent color.

Default I was Forgetting ............

I was Forgetting .................
as you know the egg contains the phosphate-lipids that give to the painting the great light '.
So to not change this aspect of the painting, apply to the painting a shellack
and alcohol (well known from the ancient for the luminescence due the tophosphorus)
In fact to avoid reducing the brightness, do not recommend using oil-colors to finish a tempera.

Thumbs up My last et

Enrico, beautiful work, and thank you for your description of how pure your process is.
I love the basket! Not easy to render such ins and outs, and you've done it so well.
