Today I managed to set out the outlines for my forthcoming painting of 'The Eggsecution'! (aptly named courtesy of Dennis). http://www.paintbasket.com/members/index.php/topic,1896.msg25514.html#msg25514
The outline is drawn in water colour pencil and, I hope you can see them on the photo if you expand it. (I'll post a quick close up video later too).
I'm hoping to get time to plan the painting then,  post about 3 progressive pictures & short videos to completion.

Here's the 1st pic on a 16" X 20" W&N double primed, deep edged canvas:

I've managed to paint in the next stage for my 'The Eggsecution' painting. I spent a while wondering what colour to do the background in and, whether I should add anything. I decided to create a dark brown/deep red backdrop.
I've lost my 'Colour Buster/Grey Scale' and, my printer inks have run out again!  >:(  (I wanted to use it to determine the colour for the Eggs).
I've ordered the black cartridge from internet and I'm getting the colour from Argos at the weekend so I can print the 'Color Buster' again.

Here's the next stage. I know I'm slow but, I'll speed up later and become more prolific with paintings:

You are off the ground with your painting,  :congrats:  It's looking good!

Take your time and enjoy the process.  It's going to be awesome, can't wait for the next update.   :yippee:

It is looking great Tony.  I think it was a wise choice of colours for the background. 

For the colourbuster, are you able to view it on your computer screen?  I don't know what your painting arrangements are so perhaps you have a laptop or such to paint and glance at the computer at least until the ink cartridge arrives.  Then again, it is nearly the weekend.

 :thankyou:  Lillian ;) I've been real sluggish with getting on with my paintings. There's always something getting in the way including tiredness 'cos I don't sleep well due to Sue's snoring!  >:(  It makes me rough all day and inclined to do nothing.


Kelley, thank you for your suggestion! That's a great idea and, I've just tried it and it works great! I've no excuse now but to crack on with these Eggs!  :2funny:
 O0 :thankyou:

I painted in the 'background' today. I wasn't sure of the colour of this plate 'cos it ended up a grey colour! (It's one of the optical issues that require the other objects to be painted that makes this grey look normal).
I've been assessing what colours to use for the Eggs. (It seems like a lightened version of yellow orange on the chart).
A note about this painting I'd like to point out is, the clean lines require a very steady hand! I still need to make a few minor adjustments to some shapes for a accurate rendition.
I'm tempted to wait for the background to dry before I proceed with the Eggs.
The rim of colour round the edge of the plate proved to be trying. I need to add a lighter version of the dark blue.
Painting the sides of these deep edge canvases is a bit of a pain when you forget to allow for it! Painting 'em also makes moving the canvas problematic.
I'm thinking about repeating this painting in a very loose brushwork/knife interpretation, just as an exercise and comparison.
Thanks for comments  :thankyou:

You did this all without masking?  Wow Tony, your hand is steadier than mine.

Hey Kelley, I didn't paint the outline round the Eggs and plate free hand! I used a cut out of contact paper. It was the adjustments, the inner line of the plate and the rings that have proved difficult to hold steady. (My Mahl Frame won't fit on the Easel because this canvas is in the landscape mode! (My mistake of not allowing for that in the making of it!)
Today I might have a go at the Eggs.
Cheers Kelley ;)
