Robin-Lee Hall, “Upstairs”, Egg Tempera on Gesso Panel, 10 x 12 Inches
Born in London in 1962, Robin-Lee Hall studied Fine Art and Critical Studies at St. Martins School of Art and received a BA in Fine Art (Painting) at Kingston Polythechnic. He was appointed in 2008 to conduct workshops by the National Gallery in London. Hall is a member of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters.
Hall works in the medium of egg tempera, a traditional way of making one’s own paint from pigments, the yolk of an egg, and small amount of water. After doing preliminary sketches, he lays the paint down on gesso panels, cross-hatching layers of color.
