Tempera Grassa Technique

In this video I try a recipe well used and known by the old Masters where I Mix one part of egg yolk with one part of linseed oil, one part of water and some vinegar, and I wave this oily egg tempera that has these beautiful oil properties. I hope you will find this helpful and interesting, and you will experiment with it to see the results yourselves. Of course this is a study on a painting by the Great El Greco.
