The Brown Egg

So I missed a day of painting.  I had worked on one to post earlier, but it didn't work out quite right.  The one I'm posting is one I did as an experiment in October.  Julie Ford Oliver had the Guild swirl white and black gesso on a flat surface.  We mixed it up slightly with a brush end and then pressed a canvas board in to the wet gesso.  We were then supposed to paint what we "saw".  It took several days, but surprise, look what I finally saw.

Here is the finished painting using transparent paint.
