Mixed Bouquet with Egg

This is the first of a few recent still lifes.  The title should actually be mixed bouquet with misshapen egg!  I have temporarily given up on the egg after repainting it numerous times.  One of these days, I will go back and make the egg more well, eggy.

Figure Sketch

A group of us meet once a week to draw or paint from a model and the above is a recent sketch from a two minute pose.  I had bought Sherrie McGraw's book The Language of Drawing several years ago but I didn't read it thoroughly until recently.  It is such a wonderful book and Sherrie's drawings and words are so insightful and inspiring.  Anyway, the above sketch was my attempt to put the lessons from the book into practice.

Here is one more museum piece before I get back to my still life paintings.  I liked the bust looking forward while the tall gentleman bends to closely examine the landscape.
