About the Workshop

In this class, I'll be taking you through my process of painting with very simple tempera colors. These inexpensive paints have so much hidden power in them which we will explore in this short course. We will paint some beautiful orange branches. You can follow along and paint your own branches and also add your own tweaks to it.
Tempera colors are water-soluble paints that versatile and easy to use. It can be worked from dark light and you can paint in white areas. Since it contains a lot of pigment, it is thick and opaque like acrylic paints. But, unlike acrylics, which once dry can’t be reworked, tempera colours allows you to return days later and alter the paint. As we move forward, you'll see how absolutely fun, versatile, and forgiving this medium is. Can't wait to see you for the workshop.
