watercolor and gouache 6 x 11 inches
This is my favorite painting of the last couple of months. And I really enjoyed doing it. I've loved seashells as much as I love flowers since I was a child and love painting them as well. And they are much better models than flowers.... they don't move. The gray background is gouache. The rest is watercolor except for some little touch-up on the shells. I wasn't planning to paint the design on the plate, but like it better after I did. Here it is before.
