Art Description

Painting: Tempera, Charcoal on Canvas, Wood.

A huldra is a seductive forest creature found in Scandinavian folklore. (Her name derives from a root meaning "covered" or "secret".) In Norwegian folklore, she is known as Huldra. She is known as the forest spirit.
Huldra is a stunning woman of extraordinary beauty. She is often depicted with long hair and naked. In Norwegian folklore it is said that she can be identified as being one of these creatures by her cow's tail.Here in my painting she is hiding her tail in her hair.

Painted with tempera on linen canvas, stretched on a wooden frame. Ready to hang on the wall. Not framed and not needed but a thin frame of choice would look nice. Will be shipped in a box.
Tempera is a permanent, fast-drying painting medium consisting of colored pigments mixed with a water-soluble binder medium (egg, oil and water). Tempera paintings are very long lasting, and examples from the first century AD still exist. Egg tempera was a primary method of painting until after 1500 when it was superseded by the invention of oil painting.
Leonardo da vinci and Botticelli are exampels of artists using tempera.
