More Shell Sketches

More shells from the beach on Sanibel. I like the addition of the sea urchin to the conch shells. Not sure which one of these I like best, I think the composition is better on the second attempt, but I like the contrast of two types of pen that is more obvious on the first. Each of these took just a few minutes to do, but there were a couple of scratch attempts first.

I have been thinking about how to learn to paint these guys, and now have a plan on how to get there. More on that in the next post.

  1. I actually like the first one best because I find the spacing between the shells better. The urchin is a great addition!
