Egg Box II and the Shop

What is there to do on a grey wet afternoon except draw?  Realising that I’d cheated on the egg box challenge (not reading it properly!) I thought I should challenge myself to draw the box open rather than closed.  I have enormous respect for anyone who has attempted this challenge in paint.  It is hard enough in pencil. 

Open eggbox

I’ve also drawn a previous challenge – our local store.  We are lucky enough to have a local Co-op in the village, and it does a great job of stocking most things that we may need.

  2. Hey, as soon as I saw these I realised that I was on a British blog! The Late Shop is very familiar – we have one just like that down the road from us. The egg cartons are really well done. Delicate and subtle, look forward to seeing more of your work.

  3. Thank you for drawing this. It looks very nice. I like it’s purity and placement on the page.

  4. Wow is right! I love both drawings. The values in the egg carton came out great! I also love all your hatching and cross hatching marks in the shop drawing. Well done!
