Egg Tempera Paintings, and Prints of Egg Tempera's Most of my egg tempera's are completed on hand crafted true gesso panels. A time intensive process of making these panels on birch or other hardwoods is part of the production. Each panel consists of 8-10 layers of marble dust and rabbit hide glue gesso being applied by hand and finished to a fine smooth eggshell finish.
Most of the pigments I've used are sourced from mines and suppliers in Virginia. Some are hand ground from solid mineral sources.
The depth of the color in the originals is very hard to match in a print. But using 6 color printers has allowed me to come very close to the saturation of the originals.

Print of an egg tempera painting by the artist Paul Dempsey of his brothers old Mill in Central VA circa 1977,Learn More
The artist spend many weekends at this old Mill building that was being used as a home and workshop for his brother (a well known local blacksmith), wife Susan and their children in the piedmont of VA near Rustburg VA.
Sadly this old Mill is no longer standing. Repeated flooding and undermining of the banks and foundation finally led to its destruction in 2016.
The Mill dated from the late 1700's with various additions being added for offices and then later residence space.
