Beautiful moss rug

At fall one can find beautiful colors on the cliffs. The colors remind me of the rug my grandmother has made and designed (part of it below).

My grandmother had no schooling at textile craft but made great curtains and rugs. Also clothes.

Tempera on chalk base
Tempera on plastic

We can still make the colors by ourselves. One can use mere pigments and egg, oil and water as emulsion. That is called tempera painting.

The base for tempera can be wood, fabric or almost anything.First image I have painted on self-made chalk base and the second (above) on Lanavanguard, polypropylen -paper.

I once got inspiration from an article at an artist magazine Just add egg!
