Egg Painting

Egg painting with Paul Foxton. Michele Clamp. Oil on paper. 5″x8″

I tinkered with a couple of rose paintings today and had a bit of time left so why not paint along with The Foxton and paint an egg. Mainly an exercise in mixing and blending but quite satisfying.

Apparently I was gone for a long time as James came up to find me and was very amused that all I was painting was an egg.
