Charcoal Drawing of Eggs : trash art

Charcoal Drawing : Egg Shell This was so much harder to draw than I expected, which is undoubtedly what made it such fun, and may be why I get a calm satisfaction looking at the final drawing. This is quite a rare reaction for me. Drawing a satisfying picture is like cooking yourself a delicious meal - it's always tastier when someone else cooks.

I definitely need your help to name this one though, because there is a devilish imp inside me (lovingly nurtured by my Grandad) that wants to call it Great Eggspectations. Please save me from myself and my lovely pun-tastic ancestors, by leaving your title suggestions in a comment below.

Picture Description : This beautiful charcoal still life drawing of a broken egg is part of the "Carbon Footprints" series. Soft shading and delicate transitions from dark into the light elevates the humble everyday eggshell; creating art from trash.
