Mary Belle studies with Russian Painters


Mary Belle Cordell has been studying egg tempera and water guilding gold leaf with Russian painters Suzanne Scherer and Pavel Ouporov. Studying this old masters style of painting with these world class artists has been a wonderful experience for me.

The Getty Museum in California is now showing this type of art work from Venice, featuring Icons painted with egg tempera and gold leaf. I traveled to California and was privileged to see this exhibit.
