Painting on New Surfaces with Egg Tempera

Thanks Ramesh, it's very interesting to see the before and after of your non-isolated oil-glazed egg tempera, plus it's a beautiful portrait! At least one other person has told me she is not...

Tempera Grassa

VK,

A little off-topic, and I've mentioned this before on the Forum, so forgive me if it's a repeat. I agree that the chemistry is different when using tube pigments with egg yolk, and perhaps...
