St Michael

This oil painting is a small triptych that I use as a reredos when I re-enact.

The central figure is based on a renaissance painting, but I made some alterations to the armour and placed him in an English countryside.

The two bits of heraldry are variations of the arms I use as Bishop Thomas de Velmont.

I used a variation in technique for this work, as the under painting was done in acrylic, with oil worked in coloured glazes in subsequent layers.

Until next time
