Terrible pun I know but there we go. So today I started my new art class and I have to say it was great fun. For the first lesson we had to we had to draw an egg and I have to say I found it really exciting – what does that say about me? The only problem was that we were supposed to use a graphite pencil rather than conte – I never do things I’m supposed to do in a class and must be a bit of a pain but hay ho I am a paying customer.
When you say ‘draw an egg’ it sounds so boring but it really was fascinating given the shade and shape. The tutor asked me if I was enjoying this and I said that I could spend the next ten weeks drawing an egg(s). Fortunately for my fellow students (and me I guess) we won’t be doing that.
As a warm up before the start of the lesson I drew a quick sketch of an egg in one of my sketch books.
Go to work on an egg…as the old ad used to say.
