Watercolored Shells


Last week we spent a few days at Cedar Key, on the gulf, just relaxing. I took along a sketchbook and my peerless watercolor swatches.

The shower curtain had all these lovely seashells pictured on it and I thought that I could certainly draw some of them. 

Apart from zentangle and tangling I can not draw. Not a bit. Like – – – not at all. So I really cringe to show you these, but I don’t think they turned out too badly. And though the two shots above look the same, they are different. One is the unembellished watercolor. The second has been given a little extra oomph with a clear gelly roll glitter pen. Cause I like all things sparkly and glittery.

It’s just too bad the glitter doesn’t photograph well.

I even remembered to give them a little drop-cast shadow (I think that’s what Dion called it in my pencil class). Hahahaha! I am trainable. At best.
