I’ve finally been able to get back to egg tempera now that classes are winding down for the holiday season. I absolutely love this medium but need a full day in the studio to paint with it. That is because I mix the paint from ground pigment and fresh eggs. The paint doesn’t keep long but creates such magical colors as it dries.
The buyer had seen this piece while it was being painted and fell in love with it then. She seemed to be excited by all the purples when she saw it completed.

Lovely piece. The purples are wonderful.
Leslie, the painting is exquisite! The colors are so incredibly rich.
Thank you Wendy! I
Thank you Kathryn! That richness is what I love about egg tempera
I can smell them from here! Love the grey-blues and violets in this painting. Congratulations on having it sold before completed.
Wow! Beautiful. I've never tried egg tempura – so many mediums, so little time!
