Thumbs up My very first attempt at ET

Both of these are lovely Penny, and very well done as your first ET! What a great idea, too, to post a comparison piece you've done in oil - it informs both paintings to see these two together.

Getting accustomed to blending with egg tempera takes a bit of time to get used to and is built up over many thin layers of paint, but you are already well on your way to getting a nice feel for the medium. You can also see from these two how egg tempera allows for refinements that are harder to make happen with oil. Keep going!
