Van Eyck Technique

This oil painting on panel was one of my favorite projects – a reproduction of a Dutch painting in the technique of the master painter Van Eyck. The original is titled “Madonna and Child with bread”.

First there was a layer of medium to create a creamy texture to the oil paint, then a grey-scale underpainting of the entire piece and then a delicately applied renaissance palette to finalize the painting.
