Sea Shell #1

Sea Shell #1, oil on cradled board, 12 x 12

This shell came into my possession recently and I just had to paint it.

I chose a limited palette using only raw sienna, white and cadmium red.

The simple background makes the detail of the shell pop out.

I've created 2 other paintings with this same shell. Stay tuned for further images.
