The egg carton I felt would lend itself well to graphite rather than paint, so I actually used my drawing board which usually serves as a backdrop for all my still life paintings.
I stopped after an hour on this drawing, I felt like the rest would be very repetitive and I wanted to mainly use this to see how well I would capture the major drawing with graphite instead of paint.

How can I improve the drawing
Wow, my drawing here is way off. I think I was so convinced that the repetition of the same distances for the top egg holes would be easily repeated going down that I barely even measured if that were true.
