Conch in Journal


Conch in Journal
Originally uploaded by BYarborough
I'm in the midst of my second class with Laure Ferlita, Imaginary Visit to the Beach, but this isn't an assignment from the class. Our beach scenes sparked me to check the WetCanvas reference library and I found this picture of a conch shell. The pinks were so vivid I wanted to paint it. It's in a Raffine ArtSketch journal and is painted primarily with DS paints, the pinks are American Journey and the white foam is white gouache.

Your shell is really pretty. I am taking the imaginary visit to the beach class too. I really love your pinks on this shell.
