Playing with Egg Tempera
If, like me, you love drawing and painting but missed out on lots of technique at school, you might enjoy an afternoon I have planned for Saturday 24th August 2pm – 4.30pm.
I had the good fortune to seek out and learn a little bit about the use of the Renaissance paint technique of egg tempera on a visit to Northern Italy recently. I had never tried it before and fell in love with the material and texture, in a private lesson with an expert who revives and works in ancient painting techniques.
While I am not an expert at egg tempera – in fact I am an absolute beginner – I was so inspired I bought pigment and have been giving it a go.
So this is an opportunity to join some enthusiasts who want to try their hand, and share what I know, and explore a new skill that you can develop with trial and error.
$90 / person
2pm – 4.30pm in the Barn at Ashton Park
Included: Pigments, egg, a small painting board and refreshments
