Egg Tempera

In 2009, I took some time off work to begin to learn Egg Tempera. For practice, I worked on some basic anatomy studies, and portraits of my extended family. Over 40 days and 40 nights of working with the medium, I learned many things about egg tempera, and about what I want to do with my art.

One of my projects has been working towards doing religious icon-type pieces, with portraits of people important to the field of computing (Grace Hopper, Alan Turing, Charles Babbage, etc.).
