Original Paintings

Egg tempera is a classical medium that pre-dates oil paint. In its simplest form it consists of pure ground pigment mixed with egg yolk, forming transparent colors which are applied in layers over a rigid white surface, such as gessoed board. Each layer must be brushed on from a different direction in order to not lift the paint beneath. Light passes through the layers of paint and is reflected back from the white ground, resulting in a luminous effect peculiar to this medium.
