My other shell paintings began with a white canvas and beach sand. This painting began as a palette and then had the beach sand added to it. Either way the painting begins, the sea shell is still interesting.
Next sea shell will probably begin with a white canvas and beach sand. It was easier to keep the white of the canvas than to later paint in white areas. It was more fun to add darks than to try to work with the existing values. Live and learn, but this Eye in SeaShell was still a fun painting experience.
