Simple

This picture hangs in my father’s and step-mother’s kitchen, which is appropriate since I painted it while staying at their summer house (which has now become their retirement home).  I was taking my first watercolor class with Gwen Bragg and our assignment was to paint eggs to learn how to paint subtle colors.  Most of the class painted white eggs, but my step-mother had only brown eggs in the refrigerator.

Corki's Brown Eggs, 3" x 5"

This small piece won an award in the student show.

  3. Simply beautiful! I can see why it won an award in the student show. Even simple things can have many gradations in color, and you captured all of the shadows, midtones and highlights perfectly.
