How to paint a portrait of Jesus with egg tempera – El Greco style

In this painting portrait tutorial I try to paint the face of Jesus Christ like The Old Masters. El Greco is my teacher here and although I dont use oils but the harder-to-blend egg tempera, the result looks pretty good. El Greco was familiar with egg tempera and has painted with it as he was a master iconographer of the byzantine painting himself.
