Egg Box

EggboxYou can probably tell I’ve been less than patient with this sketch!  It is also interesting how clearly I can see all the mistakes once I’ve scanned it in.  Why can’t I see them as clearly in my sketchbook I wonder?

We buy our free-range eggs from the farm in the village.  This involves standing in the farmhouse porch which has roses rambling round it and stone bench-seats either side, often with empty egg boxes left on them.  We rattle the knocker on the heavy oak door to summon our eggs.  After some brief chit-chat with the farmer’s wife, we wait quite a few minutes while she presumably goes and finds some from wherever the hens lay them.  You don’t get much fresher than that.

My favourite egg dish is probably a good old english fry-up with fried or poached eggs.

  1. I think you did a terrific job. 🙂 When I draw and realize where I’ve gone off, I immediately scan for something that I got right. 🙂 “The Creative Licence” suggests that every drawing has something right in it. I love that. Cheers! Keep up the great work … Mary Ellen

  2. I think you did a great job with it!
    But I can relate to the scan thing. Don’t know what it is, but it happens to me too …

  3. I think this looks great! However, I can also relate to the scan thing. I think it must be the similar to the trick of looking at the painting or drawing in a mirror, or looking at it upside down — the mistakes just leap out at you!
    😀 Keep up the great work. I haven’t tried this challenge yet, but it looks TOUGH!

  4. From here it looks great. It’s true about mistakes showing up in the scan – looking at your work in a mirror has the same effect. It gives you some distance. In this case you’re being a perfectionist though! (takes one to know one)
