#140, "Eggs-etera", oil, 6" x 6"

Guess what? I discovered I can post ahead. So while I'm in Mexico you will be getting this post and the next one. I adore painting raw eggs and shells. What I learned while painting this one is that the yolks are actually a yellow shade of gray. The making of gray is the use of all 3 primaries plus white. Grays are getting very exciting for me and I will be using them more and more. It thrills me that if I just paint shapes and values (and don't think about eggs) that I end up with a painting with eggs and broken shells. This painting really tickles me. The Ray for the Day is "Eggs-etera".

Eggs 6 x 6.

Hi Phyllis,
You've got them eggs looking just right,
as I sit here at six o'clock in the morning
I can only think of them served up fried with
bacon and alllllll the trimmings,
Full English please.

Thank you Stuart.

I just found your blog and I'm really enjoying it. I am just learning to paint. Iteresting thoughts on grey. My dad, a great artist told me to make grey you mix white and blue to the intensity that you want, and then keep adding orange until it turns to grey.
