Hallingdal Troys Pattern Packet

This Hallingdal 12” pouring bowl (troys) was painted using JoSonja acrylics in 2006.

 I designed this “troys” in reminiscence of other’s I have seen.  Trøys og bolle just means a bowl with a handle and spout, or pouring bowl.  The Hallingdal design can be painted on your favorite background color.  Black, black green, dark blue, Teal Green or Spice are good colors.  Because red was a very popular background color, I brightened it up for fun with a brighter color than I usually use.  For a reference, use “Rosemaling Styles, Study and Design” which is out of print, but available on DVD.

Hallingdal, along with Telemark produced the most numerous painters and reached great heights in artistic development.  The painting here is especially connected to the Sata-Baera School in Al, where the first known Norwegian rosemaler, Truge Gunhildgard (born 1699) decorated several interiors.  He was a pioneer and did not create the local style as we know it.  The style stems from the Sata-Baera School and those associated with it.  Geometric designs were often used in bowls as I have done here in this very basic design.

The packet includes three pages of instruction, two enlarged photographs and the line drawing.

Price: $8.00
