I have been working a series of new Egg Tempera paintings, which is a technique I am getting more drawn too. I love the way the colours are built up through the countless layers applied, which suits my way of working. It dries almost instantly so many layer can be quickly applied.
There are many different types of binding mediums that can be used for Egg Tempera, these were painted in a fairly straight forward medium of: egg yolk, distilled water, a few drops of Damar varnish and distilled vinegar as a preservative.
Two of the painting framed are completed, the others are in progress
