Hi Matt. Had a great break last week. Today was my birthday.
I rendered these 2 eggs from life and learned a lot about conical forms and technique.
Since I can’t tap with a brush like you do in oil painting I just blended it with a fan brush. I did x strokes and then went across it all with a bigger brush. Both of these were about an hour. I think I overdid the egg drawing without bowl, and that was the second drawing.
I’d appreciate any input on technique and rendering better. I’m trying to balance all 3 disciplines, drawing from life, imagination and reference.
