Egg Tempera Painting II
Open to all levels of painters, from beginner to advanced.
Old as the Egyptians and most famous during the Renaissance, egg tempera painting is becoming increasingly popular with artists today. Tempera has unsurpassed luminosity. Dozens of glazes and scumbles can be applied in a day, and yet the medium also allows for meticulous linear detailing.
This comprehensive five-day workshop, taught by an internationally recognized tempera painter, offers the opportunity for in-depth work in egg tempera: students will spend five full days working on a painting of their own design. Koo will help with the initial planning stages, provide on-going discussion and critiques, give painting demonstrations, and discuss the important design elements of old master painting.
Demonstrations presented in this workshop include: painting a portrait in egg tempera; creating granite, marble, and other textured surface; decorative and geometric patterns; incised lettering; oil glazing over tempera; how to set up and photograph still life and portrait subjects; and more.
Materials fee: $60.
