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.
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.
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.
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:)
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.
