Here's my first tempera painting and it's preparatory drawing from a few months back. Now I have someone teaching me how to work with tempera, so I'm improving. I am liking tempera painting. Also in the process I am preparing my own wooden panels, which is a satisfying thing to learn. With the painting I'm currently working on I'm preparing my own paint with pigments I buy (with egg tempera it's really easy). I believe it has been valuable for me to learn how to make a painting from "scratch" in this way.
