This is the shell that inspired this trip to the edge...please click to see detail of all images...

The sketch with a watercolor pencil

The sketch with the lines worked with water

The painting in progress

random infinity


This was just an easy escape from watercolor yesterday...although I paint very watercolor-like, diluting my acrylics with a lot of water, it is easier for me to accomplish what I set out to do with acrylics...I imagine this is due to the fact that I have been using them for 15 years or more...

Looks Beautiful Rebecca!
It's always interesting to see artistic inspiration! I love seashells, and the symbol of the circle representing everlasting life. I was just at your blog just as you were at mine! :-)

Happy evening!

Beautiful, Rebecca. It's interesting to see the steps you've taken to create this piece. I like the greens and blues and the pattern and texture in the painting.
