Another shell, today’s sustained drawing, this one using watercolor pencils. The light outdoors and hence indoors was diffuse. We had mostly cloudy, humid weather with scattered thunderstorms and a high temperature of 80 degrees F, here in the Washington DC suburbs. So I started another drawing of the shell sitting on top my black desk.
The shades of color and different densities of darkness inside the black are as fascinating as the shell itself. As you can see, I didn’t get as far as to create a complete background for my shell, more of a vignette around the edges.
There’s so much to look at in small things. All the differences around the edges can carry you a long ways.
