Here's an egg tempera version of a watercolor pineapple from some time ago. I wanted something small and loose for practicing blends and light washes. Also, this is a good time to explore some of my new pigments. Opaque white is proving interesting to apply. It doesn't cover totally but softens nicely. I'm using an aqueous dispersion of Titanium White and have read that mixing egg yolk straight with dry pigment will provide more covering power. More on that soon.
