James Lynch, a contemporary artist, has become renowned for his detailed paintings of animals which he paints using the ancient medium of egg tempera. He mixes traditional gesso from raw ingredients and makes his paint according to Quattrocento recipes, using pure ground pigments, egg yolk and water. The paint is built up in thin layers and eventually produces a sheen which gives a translucent glow to the vibrant colours. The influence of nature is visible throughout many of Lynch’s paintings and it is particularly noticeable in ‘Ewe and Lamb’ with the depiction of the rural countryside and domesticated animals. The ewe and lamb’s magnificently painted woollen coat is illuminated by the sunlight which subsequently enhances the autumnal orange and yellow leaves in the background. ‘Ewe and Lamb’ is a magnificent painting set in a traditional English landscape which is evidently influenced by the surrounding landscape of Lynch’s home in Somerset.
