Florida artist Daniel Ambrose is scheduled to teach an egg tempera workshop in Port Clyde, Maine from July 25 to August 1, 2020.
Egg tempera is an ancient painting medium — a handmade water-soluble paint that dries quickly and produces luminous artwork. Ambrose will instruct attendees in the process of making egg tempera paint and mixing pigments, use of design, color and light, as well as discovering a mindful way for each artist to select an authentic subject.
“The past eight summers I have been visiting coastal Maine,“ Ambrose explains. “The incredible light and landscapes inspire me. It’s amazing how a few summer days in a small fishing village can be so rejuvenating! I want to share my passion for this special community, holistic approach to landscape painting and the fascinating medium of egg tempera painting.”
Ambrose’s professional career spans more than 30 years. He is a member of the American Society of Marine Artists whose work can be found at galleries and museums along the East Coast. He is a co-founder of the American Tonalist Society, which held its Inaugural Exhibition in New York City last summer.
This is the first time he is sharing his approach to painting and techniques in egg tempera.
