Seashell and Bottle SOLD

5 x 7 inches, oil on panel

This is the same seashell I did in a more impressionistic style earlier this week. I decided to tackle it more directly this time and really attempt to capture the pearly reflective surface of the shell. Light and shadow define form, but when every surface on an object reflects light, I discovered that the form is very hard to describe. I enjoyed the challenge, though.
