Almost EDM Challenge 93


I wanted to join in this week with the Everyday Matters Challenge, but somehow when I sat down to draw I got mixed up and ended up drawing a carton of eggs closed rather than open. Oh well, it was good practice working with color, which has been a bit of a challenge for myself. I am not sure if I will retry this challenge or not.

This drawing was done with just my daughter's Crayola colored pencils in my moleskine, prepped with an acrylic paint (in vanilla, but I forget the brand).

Your drawing came out great! I like not only the color but the shadows in the carton itself.

I like your carton - especially the eggs peaking out through the top holes. The crayola pencils really gave you some nice pastel tones!! Just excellent!!

Beautiful work...perfect just the way it is...it's better that it's closed so that we have a variety of perspectives on the egg carton.

Hey Omly - I saw your message on Everyday Matters. I'm glad to see you here - and I think this turned out beautiful. So you prepped with a wash of acrylic first. Turned out great. (And of course, I love that it's Crayola!)
