Raw Egg in Saucer

Some of the painters on The Daily Painters website got fed-up with painting pears and thought it would be a fun idea for everyone to paint an egg. Even though it's not Easter. I've wanted to paint an egg for a while so thought I would have a crack at it. If nothing else it's another good excuse to put down a big dob of cadmium yellow deep. I liked the way the yolk is slightly off-center. Eggcentric even...

  3. The composition has a really nice design to it. Very simple, but effective like you said.

    Good work!
