This was the most successful workshop I've done! Egg Tempera is unlike any other medium and requires a lot of concentration and attention to detail. It is not for the spontaneous painter, as it is difficult to make changes once it has begun, so everyone came with a photograph or drawing sized to the panel size they chose in advance of the workshop. We used several methods to transfer our drawings to the panel and once we separated the eggs we could start to paint. I had a wide selection of both pigment dispersions and pigment pastes to choose from.
Everyone went home with a nice painting and a new understanding of what Egg Tempera painting is all about. I hope some of them will continue to choose to paint in Egg Tempera as it is not as fussy as people believe and the results are beautiful and luminous jewel-like treasures. Thank you, everyone, for coming and I hope we can do this again soon!
