Eggs, Again!

Eggs, Again!
Eggs, Again!, watercolor, 5″ x 7″

One of the exercises my watercolor teacher had us do in her introductory class was to paint eggs, white eggs on a white sheet of paper.  It was a good technique for teaching students to see colors in the shadows, both cast shadows and form shadows.  It was during the week when we were supposed to practice this at home that my husband and I went to spend the weekend at my parents’ beach cottage, where there were brown eggs!  So, I looked for colors in their shadows.  That picture now hangs on the kitchen wall in my folks’ house.

The Doodlewash prompt for our February Nature Walk today is eggs, and what we have in our kitchen today are brown eggs.

    • I have one student who did this exercise in one of my classes and never started seeing the colors. She good naturedly ribs me about it still. (White on white and WHERE are the colors?)

I'm interested in hearing what you think!
