EGG TEMPERA

"Every picture brings a new problem, and who know if we may be able to solve it. But if there were no new problems we should all cease painting; for there would be no more art."   Jules Breton


The following images represent paintings produced in egg tempera. 

Egg tempera is a delicate medium made from egg yolks and powdered pigments. It is a water soluble mixture that builds form through layers and layers of thin paint strokes that have an intrinsically transparent nature. Light penetrates down and bounces back up capturing color in a way that is unlike any other medium.
