The Incredible Edible-Egg

Close ups

Oil on 5x7 canvas panel.

This is my contribution to this week's DPW's Paint Your Breakfast Challenge posted by Carol Marine.
The assignment: This week your job is to paint your breakfast.

I enjoyed this one. Ironically it's the initial doubt at the outset... later turning into a feeling of success at the finale that ultimately produces the feeling of enjoyment. The deeper the doubt...the more potential enjoyment if successful. Straaaaange.

I first toned the canvas with acrylic using warm colors. This influenced the final strokes of oil.

  1. Dean, I love fried eggs, and I love this fried egg. With your ability, I can't imagine you having any doubt about this challenge.

  2. Great job! You should do more food!

  3. One of the best I have seen on this challenge Dean!

  4. Oh Dean, j'arrive à temps! Il est l'heure du petit déjeuner, c'est parfait!
    Une perfection que cet oeuf sur le plat... Les couleurs, la brillance... Un oeuf sur le plat en vie!
    Gros bisous

  5. it makes me want to make a fried egg! It really looks like it will be a good breakfast. kind of light, though, I hope you had toast too! Great always!

  6. Really I also want to have it in my breakfast have made it so inviting!

  7. Amazing how beautifully you've captured that not quite done white of the egg, Dean. Also makes me crave toast and eggs.

  8. hi dean,i just want to say,great! i like it very much.ben.

  9. The highlights and subtle transparency add to the feeling of the egg just starting to cook in the skillet. Well done or just getting there.

  11. No...It's Incredible Dean!! I love realistic...SO beautifully painted!!!!
