Virgin, detail from Annunciation Mural at All Saints

These murals I did using egg tempera on plaster. I used the same brush for the whole painting. Every day I showed up and mixed my paints (powdered pigments) in a bowl with egg yolk and water. There was so much dripping, I see why people use acryllics nowadays. But I like the luminosity and translucency of the egg. It's rare to see. These have been coated with Liquin lately by a friend, and I'll post photos of them when I get pictures in a few days.
