2 Sea Shells





5x5" Oil on canvas. (Click here for information on availability)
The colors scheme is natural sand, but with hints of rose and aqua.

My daily painting continues. This one is being offered for auction via the link above. I'm still working with technological issues relating to accurate images. I tried scanning this directly and then working with it from there. Time consuming... but probably because I don't know what I'm doing! The colors seem fairly accurate though, at least on my screen. Although, the image is always a little less than the actual, it seems.

Dear Helen,
Thank you for your comment on my blog. Your the first! I went to your sites and really liked your work especially the painted bowls. I am substitute teaching K-5. Looks like we have more than art in common.
Keep up the great work! Debra

These shells are delightfully 3D, & I do like your background - how did you achieve that effect?

Thanks! the background started out much darker - and when dry I began to overpaint with lighter tones... not really a scumbling technique, but the dark does show through a bit.
