Last birch bark fix of the day. Locally foraged bark painted with ochres only from @clearwellcaves This is where to get the deepest, brightest iron ochres found in the country. Ian the Freeminer there told me he saw receipts in the archives, when on holiday in Italy and visiting the Vatican, for ‘Rossa Inglesi’ from the painting of the Sistine Chapel. He said when he saw the colour he knows so well from mining, washing, grinding and grading it daily, that the hairs on the back of his neck stood up. He new the exact hue and tone. I asked him if he’d told this great story to his local newspaper at least, but he hadn’t yet. This ‘English Red’ is what I buy from him even now, and has been mined for 4700 years continuously, by hand, and for 2000 years just with deer antler picks, by men of The Forest of Dean. Here are all four main ochre colours (red, brown, purple and yellow) made into watercolours with cherry tree gum and honey from my friends, and painted with sticks from the riverbank. The figures are ancestors, somehow. .

Este lugar estaba tan lleno de colores exóticos y formas peculiares que decidí mimetizar mi arte con este lenguaje.
Hice bocetos retratando plantas que veía a mi alrededor y utilicé únicamente el color negro y las líneas para generar algo orgánico y sutil.
Estas plantitas rinden homenaje a la naturaleza que admiro.

Producción del material de pintura con insumos de la zona.
Busco trabajar sin materiales tóxicos con el fin de cuidar el medio ambiente y mi salud. Usualmente las pinturas que he utilizado tienen olores muy fuertes y dañinos para el sistema respiratorio, además necesitan de solventes aún más tóxicos para diluirlos. En este caso solo necesité agua y mucho jabón para lavarme las manos.

So we decided to go for a completely stone based natural paint that would add texture and an aged look.
We used the Porters Paints Interno Limewash. It is beautiful...... However limewash does need to be painted completely by hand.... 😂 thank goodness it was only the walls and not a ceiling.

We started the day with cuddles, then breakfast then a visit of friends for our second bee hive split this year. Such gentle beautiful bees!!! The picture is one of the new homes our bees have...under a mango tree! Let's see if this tree will start fruiting now.
We painted this hive with natural chalk based paint it was great activity for our little one and I'm certain the bees will like it too 😉
