AP Assignment #1

First, sorry for the horrible photo.  This is a 9"x12" oil painting of three eggs in a towel.  I haven't painted in a while and I've never painted a subject similar to this, which I feel is told by the final outcome.  I think I did well with the shading and texture of the towel, but capturing the smooth texture of the eggs was more difficult. I'm extremely excited to be starting AP art!

  1. It's good to see you branching out of your comfort zone and painting something you're unfamiliar with, this exercise will help build your skills.

    I enjoy some of the depth you've captured in the towel's folds, particularly in the bottom right corner. I also enjoy your rendering of the towel's texture. I feel as thought the eggs may have had color from the towel reflected back in them. Many times white objects reflect the color of what they are most near. If this is correct this may unify the piece. In terms of smoothness, however, the eggs do read as smooth.

    Good first piece! I'm glad to see you experimenting and branching out! Thanks for remembering the dimensions and medium and make sure to have fun with them and I'm glad to hear you're excited for AP!
