I was never happy with the colours of the original so reworked this egg painting, after and before. I didnt repaint the eggs themselves so it just goes to show how tricky acurate and consistent photography is.
I keep coming back to this one, its been on a off the easel for a couple of years now and I hope its finally finished. I like the concept, its been developed from a telephone camera holiday snap - not even mine, but the idea was better than the reference material so I had to learn along the way. Its tricky to photograph as blues and purples seem to be and so looks better in reality.
Some small, quick, painted poses from last weekend - most of them 20 to 40 minutes. Its taken me a while to get back into painting such quick poses from life but its good fun. These are on tiny canvasses, the largest being 8" x 8". I quite like them as a set but if I decide not to recycle them a bit of touching up may be necessary - always a bit of a dilemma because I kind of like to keep life sketches pure.
