A new-to-me conch shell arrived in the mail yesterday.  I had already begun drawing it from a photo before its arrival.  Now I’m drawing it from life.  I want to get to know every lovely curve, texture, and ripple of its beautiful form.

I’m so amazed that an animal makes a house as glorious as this one.
