Mediums

Lead Pencil:
Emma Rhodes uses a full range of professional lead pencils from 9H through to 9B to layer the tones for a photographic image.

Coloured Pencil/Pastel:
Emma only uses artist quality pencils to create a light resistant image that can be passed down the generations.

Soft Pastel:
A flexible medium like this is great to work with and as with all mediums she only works with those made with quality pigments. It is advisable to arrange professional framing in order to avoiding disturbing/smudging the image.

Watercolour:
This beautifully delicate medium, which Emma uses on a range of acid-free papers to create different effects depending on the subject and background.

Egg Tempera:
Emma makes her own egg tempera using only the finest pigments. It is a versatile medium that can be as strong or delicate as the image demands and is as lasting as oils.

Oil:

This medium can be used on canvas paper, boards or stretched canvas depending on the customers preference. Due to the nature of oil paints, each layer needs to dry completely before the next can be started. It is also advisable to return the painting for specialist varnishing approximately six months after completion.
