I know I commented but I don't see it.
Anyway...wow Tony, what a great one you did here. I realize the patience you put into it believe me. Alot of heart!
Something you'll have for generations. How did you get the egg so incredibly smooth?? I can see so many things in the painting that took so much steadyness and patience.
Yeah, you did post a comment and I forgot to get back with a reply! It was on here: http://www.paintbasket.com/members/index.php/topic,1921.135.html
Pat, I painted the eggs wrong initially. They were too dark. I then spent some time determining the colour and then painted in on in one go (wet-in-wet style). I just blended by soft strokes of the brush. I'm not up on this 'glazing' technique yet. I've yet to see the video lesson replay on this subject to learn what it is, why you use it and how.
If I condensed the hours together on this 'Eggsecution' painting, I'd have got it done in a hours, not months!
I'm considering my next one and, I won't be taking so long on it this time! I've a few ideas and, I may try do a composite one from a combination of photos I've taken.
Thanks for your kind words on this painting Pat
