"Egg Tempera and the Early Renaissance Method of Developing Fleshtones"
August 20-24, 2018

This course will teach the technique of painting flesh tones in egg tempera painting as it was practiced in 14th and 15th Century Italy. This painting technique requires discipline but pays great dividends to those who learn to master it. The paint is actually applied in cross-hatch strokes. The brilliant and jewel-like surface is often described as luminescent. The paints are made by mixing powdered pigments with the yolk of an egg. This color mixture is applied over a detailed under-drawing thus allowing the artist to separate the painting process into distinct tasks. The artist first composes, draws and establishes the values of the painting in black and white. The painter can now give his or her full attention to issues of color.
