Painting Eggs

I spent some time in my workroom yesterday painting eggs. This is what came from that. This egg was started a couple of weeks ago. It has been layered with a base coat, metallic coat and another matte coat. The trees were then painted in their basic shapes and colors. Yesterday I put the main shapes in with a Sharpie using a purple color that would match the background. This was a little to bright for me, so I thinned some white down to ink consistency and did an overpainting with it. There is an artist (can't remember his name..duhh) that does lovely paintings of a simple row of trees..quite stylized. This was the basic effect I was going for with this egg. It didn't really get there, but is closer than I expected.
