    Egg Tempera Ink
    Question

    ​Does anyone (Dr. Joyce Stoner?) know if Andrew Wyeth always began his egg temperas with an India ink underdrawing, or did he do so only for certain paintings, or for just part of his career (i.e. early on)?  

    Thanks,

    Koo Schadler

    ​I am posting on behalf of Dr. Joyce Hill Stoner:

    I believe he rarely if ever used India ink to begin a tempera – it was usually pencil – and then tempera washes and then zero in on details

    Ink was sometimes used in his water colors for very black blacks—
