This Sor-Trondelag ale 12” plate was painted in 2003 using JoSonja acrylics.
There was a variety of painting done throughout Trøndelag. The further north, the more simplistic. Blue and blue-green on white was popular, often just a series of simple scrolls tied together with strokes, or acanthus leaves flowing gracefully off the scrolls or lines. Faux finishes were very popular during the 1800’s and can be found in the columns and wide moldings in the Røros Church. To the south in Oppdal there were generations of the Horne family that conducted had a school there, where all these styles were painted over time. On this plate I combined Baroque flower style found in Oppdal and the simple monochromatic style from Trøndelag on the border.
The packet includes three pages of instruction, two enlarged photographs and the line drawing.
