Eggshells (Click here to view eBay results)



This is a study in neutral greys. Trying to mix the subtle differences in the eggshell white and the warmer pinkish inside color, all against the warm blue and greenish surface colors. The only colors with some chroma is the spot of yoke. Chroma is a measurement of richness or saturation of color. Click on the image for a larger view.

I think I actually like the yolk and egg white bit best. Eggs are such an enduring source of interest for small paintings........

I love it! Great composition, has the feel of eggs, has the narrative of "where did the rest of the egg go?" That's a lot to pack in there. It's a great painting.

Mick,

I'm constantly amazed how you manage to make your paintings look realistic yet maintain a painterly look. Great subject; Great painting.

Thumbs up!

Really is a great painting (as are all of yours), I can't imagine trying to mix those colors.
