Painting Medieval City
Painting - Egg Tempera Painting
This is another one of my egg tempera paintings. The process is a medieval technique that requires hours of patience. Tiny multi zero brushes are used on board that is gessoed in the ancient technique seven times and ground flat with a wooden block. Each layer of paint is applied in thin, thin glazes and layered at least seven times. This creates a jewel tone effect that shows layers of colors and tiny brush strokes. Gold leaf is applied on the domes. Icon painting is still often done in this technique. I enjoy painting seabirds in this technique but once in a while I paint a medieval scene. Because of my Italian heritage and my love for Italy, I choose this image.
