This Numedal design is painted on a 10 inch plate using Gold Oxide for the background colors. The Rocailles are fun to paint and constructed a little differently than other styles. Some of the painters used ideas from the neighboring district of Telemark as you can see by the flowers on the border.
I design this tine with inspiration from Sebjorn Kaverndalen from Numedal. It's fun to paint with it's simple scrolls and rococo flower forms, sometimes with a few small more realistic flowers borrowed from neighboring districts.
I painted this yarn tine in preparation for a DVD on Numedal. It's such a great piece and suitable for the style. I love to incorporate sheep on one side. The rocailles are painted with a flat brush on this piece and it's such fun.
