    Hey I just found your site through googling egg tem­pera. I am start­ing to gather mate­ri­als to write icons, as I went to an iconog­ra­phy work­shop last month. I am learn­ing to paint in gen­eral as well so this seems like a very help­ful site. I am look­ing for info such as how to clean brushes after using egg tem­pera, and what brushes are good, etc. Also, I was taught at the work­shop to mix half egg yolk and half vine­gar to pre­serve it, and add the earth pig­ments to that mix­ture. I will keep check­ing out your site for use­ful info. May I add you to my blogroll? Thanks.

    Must have been inspir­ing. Uh, which one are you in the pictures? :)

    Speak­ing of brushes, how’s about an overview on brush types/hairs (Unless I missed that).

    I don’t see myself in any of the pic­tures. I was there, though.

    I’m not an expert on brushes, but I’ll see if I can put some­thing together. Thanks for the suggestion.

    David, Since Gray­don has vio­lated his agree­ment with Rob, by hold­ing a class behind his back that Rob was orig­i­nally hold­ing, I think that any “non-disclosure agree­ments” are off. If you want to post what you learned, do it. Gray­don has no cor­ner on this infor­ma­tion. He did not invent color. He gleaned some­thing. Oth­ers out there can glean the same stuff. He is now going to teach it to peo­ple that he “chooses”. Doesn’t that fly in the face of real edu­ca­tion? After all, he got vis­i­bil­ity on a site that shares!!!! Look at all Rob has given with­out cost to us. Gray­don is a ship that is going down. No one has a good word to say about him and his busi­ness deal­ings. His char­ac­ter is not there. I really don’t think that there is much there that is Graydon’s any­way. You know, if you are given tal­ent and intel­li­gence, you have to be thank­ful for the gifts. He didn’t invent tal­ent, either. So, he owes his abil­ity to under­stand to Some­one Else, in my opin­ion. He doesn’t own the info. If you have a great rela­tion­ship with Gray­don and don’t want to post any­thing, fine. But, this is your blog. Gray­don does not own this blog. You do. You de man, here. Just don’t be so afraid to post what you have learned. Don’t even accredit it to Gray­don. Since it is out there any­way, he’d have to prove that he invented the secret! LOL!!! He is not God in anyone’s books.

    Lumpy,

    Regard­less of any issues with Gray­don or dis­agree­ments between him and Rob, I told him that I would not pub­lish details from his talk. So I won’t.

    That being said, there is no secret about the basic approach, which is to use the full Mun­sell chip set as a ref­er­ence for mix­ing paint. With a lit­tle effort, any­one can work out the details.

    Hi David,

    I would love to see more pic­tures of WIPs and tech­ni­cal walk­throughs– also the his­tory of mate­ri­als and art in gen­eral– thanks for shar­ing all your knowl­edge over the last year, look­ing for­ward to many more:)

  7. David says

    Jeff,

    Thanks. I’ll keep that in mind when try­ing to fig­ure out what to post here.

    I sec­ond the request for WIP’ and tech­ni­cal walkthroughs.

    I am look­ing for infor­ma­tion on piec­ing sketches and ref­er­ences together in a com­po­si­tion. I don’t know if you are inter­ested in doing some­thing like that.
