A very interesting  theme from the life of the Virgin Mary; the Visitation and the point where St Elisabeth rushes to embrace the Holy Mother.  A beautiful story.

Here I ve imitated a medieval Romanesque painting of Catalan origin. Romanesque painting is very interesting artistically. The figures initially seem primitive but they are very expressive instead. The colors also are powerful and deep. The painting immediately captures the eye of the viewer and communicates the message.

A small panel of - 20x20 cm which proved to be ideal, sourounded by its wooden frame, which is also painted with the same organic dye

A canvas panel  much rougher than my usual panels - something that adds texture to the painting even the copper gold that was added on the surface. Finally,). Egg tempera, shellac and an organic dye to give the antiue patina . Finaly resin varnish was added to make it last.
