This painting was an experiment for egg tempera on fake parchment paper, which is why you can see the colour and texture surrounding the painting.
Inspired by the same event at Old Sarum in 2014 for 'Distant Spring Rain'
in the Equestrian section.
I'm also working out a style to use for the 'Mons Badonicus Triptych' which this and other paintings/drawings will be related to.
The inspiration for the main figures are the Greek & Roman building friezes and headstones (below). The frieze from the Pantheon and myself in Late Roman kit standing next to a painted replica of a Roman Cavalryman's headstone.
