"EGG ON RED" 11018, daily painter still life © Carol Nelson Fine Art


This is my entry in the DPW challenge where we were to paint a white object on a colorful background.  Of course a white object will reflect the colors that are close to it.

Painting this egg reminded me of a drawing class I took as a freshman in college.  We each had to bring a hard boiled egg to class.  We spent three weeks drawing our eggs - first just the outline, then we added shading and shadows.

Good challenge painting, Carol. I remember a similar exercise in college...won't elaborate on what happened to the eggs afterwards.

Love the glowing egg on the RED cloth. Stunning.
