I'm Offerng a Brand New Class

The Lady     Egg Tempera on Panel

I've enjoyed working with egg tempera for some time and I'm pleased to announce this new class:

Egg tempera painting has been used for centuries and it is still makes an exciting and durable medium. Learn how to make the simple and inexpensive paint that Botticelli used for "The Birth of Venus." Using pigment, water, and egg yolk, you'll create rich and luminous colors. The process is fun and easy. You'll use the paint to create a luminous portrait, still life, or abstract. You'll learn how to prepare your support, layer colors, develop lights and shadows, and how to scrape and incise paint for special effects. You'll leave with a wonderful painting and with the knowledge that you can make your own paint any time!
