Noah a righteous man

“… Noah was a righteous man, the only blameless person living on earth at the time, and he walked in close fellowship with God…” . That is the account that comes from the book of Genesis. Another reason to paint Noah with a biblical, austere face and expression in a dark blue background like frescoes.

The image of Noah was painted on   a type of canvas that was “cracked’   to produce the antique effect  of craquelure. Additionally an organic dye was applied on top to produce an antique, copperish patina to the painting
