Egg broken into a white bowl

Egg broken into a white bowl

Well maybe not quite impact.

I was desperate. And it was a real struggle.

The egg white was so translucent all my subtle tones havent shown on the scan.

Still had the problem of getting a depth of colour in one hit, so went over and over the egg shell until it looks too patchy

I was working in my kitchen which has multiple spotlights so I had no defined light source. I impacted the egg into a white bowl and made the mistake of trying to paint the shadows of the bowl which just looks like some grey smears.

Note: The winning photograph in the Guardian which was an egg broken into flour was published after I had painted this.
