This is another interpretation of an illustruation out of the famous Morgan bible (Kreuzfahrerbibel). 
I have made it with egg Tempera, different inks and bronze pigments on wooden canvas. 
I love how intense the colors are in egg tempera paintings. It is hard work to do your stain all by yourself, but it is worth the effort. It has an interesting color intenstiy and shine compared to modern stains.

"Battle of Fulford" 

I repainted the "Battle of Fulford" , original by Matthew Paris -Monk 1200 – 1259 on a Wood canvas (60 x 50 cm) in a free way, means no exact reconstruction. 
The painting has been first sketched with pen, then inked and painted with egg Tempera 
(the way artists used to paint in the middle ages). 
The egg Tempera consists of egg yolk, water and mineral colour pigments.

Acrylic Painting for a friend whose passion is sailing 

A Buckler (medieval fighting shield) painted in the ancient way. 


The idea was to paint the surface of a historical medieval weapon with the same technique, shields were actally painted at these times. 
The painted figures are the protagonists out of the oldest fencing manuscript, known as Royal Armouries MS I.33 (Towerfechtbuch). 
My goal was to match the colours as close as possible to the original. The original was painted around 13th century.
In order to achieve this I used a primer made of chalk, a recipe with egg and mineral colour pigments (egg tempera) to create my own colours and finished it with a rosin varnish.

The colour result clearly matches the original drawing in the Towerfechtbuch.
