Organic speckled eggs.......with chocolate


Organic Speckled Eggs
7" x 5" coloured pencil on Canson Mi Teintes

Courtesy of Mr Marks and Mr Spencer. They came in a little turquoise bag and they looked so nice they begged me to buy them and put them in my next still life! OK - so I like doing eggs and I like chocolate - what can I say? Putting them in a little Chinese porcelain bowl and drawing them makes me realise that I can hold out and need not eat chocolate even when it's right in front of me! The sacrifices one makes for one's art.

I did hold two or three back just in case I needed to alter the colour balance............

A small jewel. Is this for sale, Ms K? (In case the marble doggy has gone the way of all flesh ;D.)

Doggy has not gone away - he's about to be resurrected on Canson MT which I always find makes me sketchier than HP paper. And yes this is for sale!

All this talk of chocolate - and we don't have any :( This is delightful, Katherine. I love how you've captured the glaze on the bowl too.

I love the color harmony, Katherine.

You are a stronger woman than I am Katherine; chocolate can sit in my house for a long time but break the seal of the wrapper and it is all consumed greedily by myself...lol!

The drawing is lovely an particularly like how you have used the complimentary colours and how they intertwine.

This little drawing is my favorite drawing of yours. I love the composition and how you placed the darker cast shadow on the upper portion of the piece. Very nice! It's very intimate.
