Egg Tempera

Egg Tempera is a mixture of dry pigment, egg yolk and distilled water, painted on a    gessoed hardboard panel.  People often talk about painting of light to capture the      mood of a subject but I've always found that it's the shadows that  make a composition appealing. Egg Tempera is the medium that allows me to keep the painting alive with clean, fresh color no matter how  dark the shadows might be.
