Thanks for your kind comments everyone.
Here's a quick sketch in answer to Carol King's question about the previous postCarol asked " Why are they in a Camembert box? Are you sending them to me? And what happened to the broken egg on the table?" so here's the thinking behind it.
Last week, we bought some eggs from a local shop and they came in a bag full of husks(?) for protection (sketch above). I did think about sketching them then decided it would be crazy.
I later saw some quail's eggs in H.K. and decided to draw them instead.
The Camembert box was a perfect nest along with the husks but I just drew the detail...then I zoomed out but decided it was not quite complete so, cracked (they seem to squash rather than crack) one of the broken eggs......finding it's not a good idea to do this on paper as it absorbs in about 5 minutes (but helps with fast sketching skills).
I haven't cooked them yet but would probably boil them...frying something so small would be a nightmare.
I could send them to you Carol but as three broke when I carried them carefully home this may not be a good idea!
My most delicious experience with quails eggs was in Mae Sot in Thailand where they sold them as a snack covered in soy sauce.
Unfortunately, I hadn't just eaten the Camembert but had been saving the box.
