Egg Tempera Grassa: A Study

A study of an egg tempera grassa paint formulation:

egg yolk, castor oil, water, commercial water-based car wax and commerical watercolor pigments:

The paint dries very quickly, as expected. Eye, brush and paint work together and the commercial car wax provides smoothness.
The egg yolk should be free of the egg white and the so-called 'eye'. This is the small whitish material on the egg yok sac. The sac should not enter the paint formulation demonstrated here.

"Waves and troughs are components of the ocean. They are surface expressions of the underlying reality and the underlying power is always there to be drawn upon- just as in artwork."- David S. Soriano
