Eggs Still Life Tutorial Video




(View timelapse preview movie.)
There was some demand for a demo with eggs, so I decided to paint one! Difficulty with this predominantly monochrome painting is to get the subtle shifts in hue right. Major features in this movie:

  • 6 1/2 hour Full painting from start to end, nothing left out
  • Palette visible in full view with turps, so you can see at which moments I clean the brush
  • I included a photograph of the setup in the movie, so you can see where the painting is heading
  • No sound but english comments in subtitles
  • Topics touched upon: EGGS, most challenging subject in still life; enhance form with small hue shifts; near-monochrome subject

Price: 10 Euro, payment via PayPal / Credit Card
You will receive the download link in your mail a few minutes after the payment is completed.


Eggs Movie format: Avi/Mpeg4. Size: 1.2GB, 6.5 hours. Playable on Win/Mac/linux with UMPlayer. For problems/questions: please leave your comments on the blog !

  2. Hello: tried emailing, but I must have the wrong address-keep getting the emails returned (sigh). I purchased the eggs and pomegranate videos and tried downloading, but got cut off twice. I used a computer with WiFi and perhaps the connection was bad, but I couldn't return to the download page to try again (got a message saying the page couldn'e be displayed). Would it be possible to send me the links for both videos directly? Accessing the video by the link you emailed worked when I had trouble downloading clementines. email is LaurRdfr@aol.com. I will be happy to send you my PayPal purchase numbers if you need them. Sorry for any inconvenience and thank you for all of you effort and your assistance:-)

  4. I am having major problems with your download, causes my windows system to crash when ever I try to play it. I used the store download link, never received any download link or email from you.
    Very , very unsatisfied and frustrated.... let me know how to resolve this problem.

  5. hello Jim. Sorry that it didn't work out, but luckily I'm here to assist ! The mail was sent to the wrong address for some reason (automatic). I just sent it manually, let me know if you don't get it.

    The movie is just a normal avi, should be no trouble. Please check you have the entire file, (1.2G) or use a download manager to be shure you get the entire file (see www.flashgot.net)

    Not shure what player you are using, but VLC Player is recommended, see

    hope this helps, if not, then let me know....

  6. Hi Jim, I just checked, there is a problem with the mail reply thing. I removed the remark on the blog about that. I need to look into this soon. For the time being, people need to use the 'back to store' link. (or send me a mail).. jos

  7. I did finally get your video to play. I originally downloaded from the "back to store" link and downloaded again from your email link, but I do not think there was a file issue in either cases. Both took hours to download and were complete files.

    The issue is that none of my players, windows, realplayer, quicktime, or Picasa would play this video file, in fact trying to play it caused a crash.
    I downloaded your recommended videolan player and it will play in that. ???

    I really like your work, and think your YouTube videos are just fantastic.
    And I will probably enjoy this demo and I would really like to have the Clementine demo too. But downloading one of your videos is on the same level of experiences as having your teeth drilled at the budget dentist office.

  8. Thnx for baring with me, Jim. Good to hear that it worked out well. Hmm I think I'd still prefer downloading the video above having my teeth drilled. It's a large file so a download manager is recommended. As for the player program crashes, maybe time to do a fresh windows install? That helps me all the time.. J.

  15. I recently purchased the video and I can not play it with windows media. I tried downloading the recommended player and apparently no longer available. I do not understand, because if an avi file should be reproducible with windows media or tv.
    It's a big frustration. I love your painting and I would love to enjoy the performance of a work to complete. It seems that he will not be able to be at the moment.
    I hope your help
    Thanks and regards

  16. Hello Jos,
    Beautiful work and great tutorials...! I'd like to purchase one of those folding paint boxes that you can refrigerate as seen at the beginning of the eggs video. Did you make that or can I purchase somewhere? Thanks..and best to you..!
