Painting in traditional egg tempera, 25x28cm, 2022
Paintings: Paula paints on paper, boards and gessoed panels in the traditional medium of egg tempera with egg yolk, pigments and water. She also paints in watercolour with Gum Arabic, water and pigments. Mixed media is a new experiment.
I paint and make prints of landscapes and cityscapes: nature; wild life; bird life in their poetic facets, beauty, and strengths; abstracts; fantasy; portraits too. My themes are diverse. I am a prolific artist and my artistic interests are explored in a breadth of themes and media.
My prints and egg tempera painting suit my graphic approach to art. I wish to emphasise that egg tempera painting is above all an elegant, aristocratic, linear graphic form of painting. It is a beautiful medium for colour.
