View Full Version : WDE April 4, 2013 - Eggs in bowl and more... all very late!

04-13-2013, 09:13 AM
I just saw the gallery of the previous week WDE, and realized that nobody did the glass bowl (at least nothing was posted yet). So, although very late, I decided to post my trial(s).
I wanted to test also a different color in the background, so I actually did two of them - the bonus for you to wait that long for my post :D

Both of them are watercolor on paper, small size (5x7 inch)

1. Bowl with eggs on blue table (?) - supposed to be wooden, but it seems more to water to me :(

2. Bowl with eggs on the brown table - a better result, I think

Some very long time ago (8th of March) I hosted, and I did manage at that time to do the sunflower (watercolor on paper, 7x10 inch), but didn't manage to post in due time:

And I also did the gladiolus from my mom garden (watercolor on paper, 7x10 inch):

thank you for looking
all C&C are welcome

Glass bowl and eggs look great with either background. Good job on the sunflower and glads.

The blue works better for me. Good work on all!:)

Oty these are all lovely - love the shadow on the sunflower middle and the gladiolas have such a lovely soft texture. The rendition of the eggs on the blue bg adds quite a bit of color to the bowl and the eggs, but I refer the wooden table bg, cause they are true to form and exactly what I am snacking on now lol.

Those flowers - sun and glads - are lovely Oty.
But I'm overjoyed with the eggs!
I like the change to the blue - it really works and the glass is so very well done - :clap: :clap: .... those on the wooden table are also yummy!:D

I'll add them to the Gallery - thank you for doing them :D

I go for either BG on the glass bowl!! Love the refracted glass at the bottom of the bowls.

Both florals are lovely, Oty!! :)

Nice flowers and eggs....I like the Lakeside eggs....

Oty, both eggs in bowls paintings are super clear, clean, and contemporary, and your two florals are topnotch. The sunflower has to be my fave.

Thank you so much for your kind words!!!
Maureen thank you very much for the beautiful photos! I had a hard time to decide which to do first, and for sure I will do more. In the end I thought I was choosing an "easy and fast to do" one, but the glass and little eggs were more difficult than I appreciated at first... And thank you for adding them to the gallery!!!
jbg - I like the name "Lakeside eggs"!!!
