This impressionist French landscape painting  was painted in many layers of egg tempera made from natural ground stones and egg yolk.  Linda Paul uses  lapis lazuli, malachite and ochers from ancient mines in Provence France to make her paint.  read more about the French ochre mines

Artist's Inspirations:  Once of my favorite French towns is Continac. It is a tiny little village where time seems to have stood still.  The center of the town is not open to any traffic so life is clam and wonderful. You eat outside under the dappled light of the  plane trees and watch the old French men play Boules. They play all day, every day!

 Most egg tempera paintings are very exact and hard line. I use egg tempera in a completely different manner, using impressionism and soft lines.

I use natural crushed stone and earth mixed with a bit of water and egg yolk to make my egg tempera paint.
Blues come from crushed lapis lazuli, greens from malachite and natural green earth found around Verona Italy.
I  use fascinating colors which have been lost for hundreds of years and new colors which I  have discovered in the Rocky Mountains. This medium is luminous and lasts for centuries.
