Painting Black Grapes

This is an introductory workshop that will focus on egg tempera materials and techniques.  Black grapes will be the subject.  The objective will be to impart the instructor’s technique and her use of the materials. We will not be looking for a finished painting, but to use the time to practice and understand the technique.  The students can then explore the medium further on their own. The class will include demonstrations, such as making the binder and mixing it with dried pigment and painting the grapes. We will explore concepts such as scumbling, glazing, and using both opacity and transparency. Painting the background and brushstroke techniques will also be addressed.  A pre-recorded video will be available before the start of the workshop to help familiarize the students with egg tempera. This workshop will take place live on Zoom. Individual help will be offered to students throughout the workshop.
