fragile-1000This is my new oil painting entitled Fragile.

I love the way light passes through objects and makes them glow with translucent effects.

Oranges and lemons are great for this – but then I noticed some eggs in the kitchen and thought “hmmm I wonder”

Well this the result. It’s oil on canvas board 30 x 24 cm and is available for £120 pound free UK postage.


I was struggling at first to get the eggshell colour so added cadmium yellow deep and cadmium orange to my palette. These two colours were used as a starting point then different amounts of blue white and burnt sienna were mixed in the achieve the final results.
