Eggs

Most days I cook eggs 🍳 and then paint them πŸ–Œ. These are those eggs.

They're delivered weekly from Mayfield Eggs, cooked, and then painted in Adobe Fresco on an iPad Pro. My favourite condiment with fried eggs is marmite mayo (4 parts mayonnaise to 1 part Marmite).

Since announcing this project, people have sent me eggy links. Megarealistic painter Tjalf Sparnaay painted an iconic fried egg in 2018, which sold for €19,500. He's painted other eggs too.
