During this two day workshop students will learn about the traditional art of egg tempera, famously used during the Renaissance but becoming increasingly popular with artists today. Participants will work on panels, using dry pigments mixed with egg to form the tempera paint. Tempera has unsurpassed luminosity. Dozens of paint layers can be applied in a day, whilst the medium also allows the painter to add fine detail. Whilst the focus will be on portraiture the techniques can be applied to any subject of your choice.
