w:30cm x h:30cm x d:5cm | plastered and painted hessian on wood panel | Strung and ready to hang on wall
Painted in watery blues and greens on an old plaster-like background this design is reminiscent of both Indian and medieval motifs. Sweet floral sprigs are framed within a trefoil framework interspersed with little dots whilst the plasterwork wraps around the edges adding textural interest.


Care:

These fresco secco panels are cracked and aged to give character and patination. On completion the plastered hessian substrate is glued to its wooden support and won’t crack or rub-back any further. Paintings where the hessian is wrapped around the panel edges may succumb to some minor flaking on the corners but a few knocks and scrapes are part of its “distressed” character.

Cleaning:

The piece is finished with wax so may be buffed and polished to maintain its lustre
