Greetings to all you casein/gouache/tempera artists! Many thanks to those of you who have expressed your desire for the forum, and to our site owner Kerri Eustice and administrators Valorie and Cheryl for making it happen. For those of us who work in these increasingly popular mediums and haven't had a home base to post work, share techniques, and ask questions, it's a dream come true.

Please help us make this forum an active home by sharing your work in any or all of these three mediums, and responding to the work of others. Until you have something new to share, feel free to post paintings you've done in the past by posting multiple images to a single thread, or up to one thread per day of your work.

Threads with information and questions are of course welcomed, and hopefully some of you will come up with projects, group activities, and challenges. Great forums are great because of the contributions of the members. We hope you'll make this forum a Wetcanvas Hot Spot. :D If you need any help, please send me or Judy a PM.

Let the fun begin!

Jamie

OMG! we're live :D Welcome everyone!!

As Jamie said, thanks to all of you who expressed a desire for this forum. :)

Hope we can all make this an interesting forum. I'm looking forward to seeing some exciting works in casein, gouache (my recent fascination) and egg-tempera.

cheers,
:)

Oops! I guess I should thank Kerri, Val, Cheryl and my fellow co-Mod Jamie!! Thanks ladies. :D :D

excellent!!!
Hopefully this will spur me on to get painting again.

This is a really valuable step for any newbies to these mediums out there.

There are some great threads with good technical advice buried deep in the Watercolour forum but newbies tend not to make use of the search function (& the 'advanced' search function isnt that great anyway ... just sayin')

Searching tip: Use google instead, and specify you want posts from WC! It seems to work better, is faster, and doesn't use resources here. ;)

Has anyone done 2 color casein paintings, like red and black? or blue and black? This was done a lot years ago in advertising art to be able to use 2 color printing instead of 4 color process.

Yes. The printing process is called duotone. Reader's Digest was particularly well known for this. The color conversion could be quite good in some cases.

Hi All,
I'm new to all this art stuff.. Only been drawing for a little over 2 years now. I came here because it said egg tempra. Is that meaning decorating eggs? Don't laugh at me if it doesn't mean that..lol
I have 4 eggs I've done. 3 Hen eggs and 1 goose egg. And I've designed an egg for next years fair. Now I just have to actually put it on a goose or hen egg.
If you would like to see a couple of the eggs I've done then just say so and I will post the pics here..

I like to do a little of everything.. so I hope this is what this is all about.. Someone needs to really explain it to the slow Iowa girl..lmao

Well no, not painting on eggs, but that sounds waay cool...egg tempera is a type of paint. Here's a definition: A painting medium in which pigment is mixed with water-soluble glutinous materials such as size or egg yolk.

Click here (http://www.trueart.info/egg_tempera.htm)or here (http://www.eggtempera.com/)or here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tempera)for more info. Now if you painted on actual eggs with egg tempera that would be something!! :D

Welcome!!

Why not post 'em over in the Decorative Arts forum? I'm sure they'd love to see them! :thumbsup:

Thanks guys..
I wasn't really looking for a place to post my egg pics at all.. Just stumbled on this site and wasn't sure what it was about, so that is why I asked.
Since I have nothing to add I will just go back to my regular threads.

Have fun all, :o

This is a fantastic new forum! I can't wait to get started! Just ordered some tubes of gouache and will be trying them out soon on some ACEO's. Will be sure to post here first! :)

Precisely my thought, Jan. :D

BTW, I'm late due to problems getting online, but better late than never, hey? I'll be hosting this site with Judy and Jamie. Thanks to all who made this possible. As Jamie said, it is truly a dream come true. My chosen medium of the three is egg tempera, in which I've been working for a couple of years, on and off. Lately, it's been mostly off, because I moved from L.A. to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan along Lake Superior. The move proved more work than I could have imagined and I am only now getting my studio set up. Got to set up a secure place for grinding all my pigments.

I'm looking forward to participating in this forum and to seeing everyone else's work, as well.

oh this forum it just fabulous! But all my work is by now buried over in the watercolor forum. I guess that means I'll just have to get more paintings underway. I'm a gouache artist (also work in pastels).

Are we gonna have projects and other such fun stuff? I so hope so!

Thanks for this place!

I'm here because of Old Tex, Ralph Parker, directed me and if you're interested in gouache I've received notice this week from Creative Catalyst
http://www.ccpvideos.com/
that the new Carla O'Connor dvd is ready for pre-order. I've taken one workshop with her and it was fantastic. I want to experiment with gouache painting later on in the summer.
