Illustration Friday - Drifting


Miss Lila the lady bird loved nothing more on a sunny afternoon than to hop into her leaf boat and drift down the stream with her picnic and a good book!

Thanks Nicola...Can I tell you a secret? I'd never heard of egg tempera before either. This is only my 2nd piece using it. I really like it. You mix egg yolk with powdered pigment, and apply glazes. They dry really quick - instantly, so you don't have to wait like you do with watercolor or oils, and it has a luminous, transparency to it. The final product is shiny, and you can even buff it. It is longer lasting than oils.
