Egg Tempera Painting with Koo Schadler 

Old as the Egyptians and most famous during the Renaissance, egg tempera painting is becoming increasingly popular with artists today.  Tempera has unsurpassed luminosity.  Dozens of colorful glazes can be applied in a day, yet the medium also allows for fine linework and meticulous detailing.  To learn a bit more about Egg Tempera visit this page on Koo's website...
