Broken Egg

Oil on canvas on panel, 6" x 6"

This is a value study of an broken egg shell and crumpled wrapping tissue paper. This is my second entry for the Daily Paintwork's weekly challenge. I meant to keep this monochromatic painting phase simpler as underpainting for the full color version. But I got carried away, and decided to post it as a finished piece.

I used to draw with charcoal on paper a lot, but since I discovered that I can substitute this with oil painting, I pretty much abandoned charcoal drawing these days. Instead, I've been spending more time drawing with oils on canvas.

I might continue this with full color, and post it later. It was another good exercise with value. It was also a great way to focus on the edges of shapes.
