15 Egg Tempera paintings!

In May, I began to use an ancient medium that was completely new to me: Egg Tempera. The technique is very different from my usual acrylic paintings. On a palette, you combine pure powdered pigment with egg yolk and create your paint as you use it.

The paint is applied in overlapping veils of color and the color can be “pure” or by layering different colors, can mix optically. I will post some photos of my egg tempera paintings. I have complete 15 in June and July and I will post photos of some in the near future.

Many modern artists have used egg tempera including Marc Chagall and Andrew Wyeth.
