The technique of egg tempera painting has been practiced since ancient times. The exacting process of mixing pigment with egg yolk and water, then applying thin layers of paint to a carved wooden panel creates images of great detail and luminescence. Fred Wessel is among the artists today working in egg tempera and he has emerged as a true master of the medium. Wessel will serve as a visiting artist and offer an egg tempera workshop in the Kirk Newman Art School from July 17-21, 2016.
