Egg Tempera Painting
It’s easier than you might think to paint with egg yolks! During this two-day workshop, William Forrestall will give a short talk and slide show on the development of egg tempera paint and how it has affected painting in Atlantic Canada. You will learn various applications and painting on heavy stock paper. Still life painting may be done outdoors, weather permitting. Participants will critique and discuss individual paintings.
Instructor: William Forrestall
William Forrestall is one of Atlantic Canada’s leading artists. His paintings have been exhibited in over 120 exhibitions including over forty solo exhibitions. He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Mount Allison University and paints full time. He and his father, Tom, share a fascination for the egg tempera-painting medium but their individual work is defined by their own distinctive creative visions. William Forrestall's paintings often combine the natural beauty of organic elements with the austerity of man-made and forgotten objects. Two full-length books have been published on William's work.
