This is a Master Work.
Not many artists today paint with traditional, Renaissance color and technique. Steel ground his own pigments and colors. He used dry pigments and walnut oil. The medium is copal varnish, walnut oil and turpentine. The white is hand ground lead white of Flake white. Only a Master can achieve such variety and vibrancy of color using very few colors. Steel used Ivory black, Yellow Ochre, Vermillion, Burnt Sienna, Burnt Umber. Touches of Cadmium Yellow, Emerald Green (tube color).
And this is only a review of Steel's materials. It would take a professional Aesthetician to write a review of the power and the glory of this great Art.
