another (old) dpw challenge

 (7x10)
From a reference photo at DPW.
I couldn't get this photo to appear as it really is: it's a bit too dark here ... which unfortunately really shows up how I overworked the shadows under the eggs--couldn't get that "glow" right. I think I was struggling between what I saw--light--and what my brain told me should be there--dark (i.e., shadow).
I'll do it again--and this time tell my brain to butt out!

This doesn't look overworked at all! It looks fresh and lovely and great colors, too.

I love the bright and fresh colors. And we all have to tell our analytical brains to butt out when we're sketching and painting! :)
