Artist's description:

This egg tempera painting is part of a recent body of work inspired by a collection of old family photographs. I loved the feel of this scene and wanted to capture the seventies colour scheme so evocative of its time, and the slightly startled look in the boy's face (wondering what school is going to be like).

The painting is framed in a contemporary slim dark grey colour wooden frame (see photos). The unframed piece measures 24.5 x 17.5cm. Painted with traditional hand mixed egg tempera paints (as used in traditional icon and medieval painting), on a traditional gesso ground, on painting paper.
