Apple's Eggs, 129 SOLD
This latest nest was based on my profile picture on my Mac. As you can see, I am in dire need of finding nests, my friend and sculptor, "Camper Bob," has volunteered a nest or so for my collection, so I hope to be painting from the real thing very soon. I have been told than fall nest hunting is much easier since there is no foliage to hide the nests, then I will just have no supply my own eggs...
This one was done in much the same manner as the last, using the "Palette of Death" and a bit more of my rigger brush. I also used burnt umber and a bit of cerulean on the eggs, the were much greener and warmer than I could ever hope to get the cobalt blue light.
