Landslide-Egg Tempera


Fernie, British Columbia


February 2016

Project type

Egg Tempera on Chalk/Marble Dust Masonite Board

Fast forward over 20 years, but reverse back to the Medieval and Early Renaissance period, 1500. During the Renaissance period, powdered pigments (such as clay, parsley, herbs) were mixed with egg yolk to create egg tempera. It is noted that every surviving panel painted by Michelangelo was from egg tempera.

While mixing the egg tempera (with only 6 colour choices) will be a challenge to give effect to the art I am envisioning, greater detail was had with the sizing, ground and chalk like priming of the hardboard
