Apples & Eggs: a study in oils

Copy of "Egg Basket by Henri-Hoirace-Ronald Delaporte" oil on 8x10 board

Another study from Paint & Draw Together
A study from an old master painting it was fun to try and get the light to balance against the dark background, unfortunately the basket was not one of my strong points, and the eggs were more difficult than I thought trying to get the shadows and light right all in all another good practice piece loved the bright colours.



  1. A good try at a difficult painting. At least you got the background a dark color and yes the basket was REALLY difficult wasn't it??

  2. Love the background too..and the basket...also love the mushroom and apples. Oh, sigh.
