Sept’16 Paint 30 Days, Day 15, Shell

Shell, 4x5
Shell, 6×4

I chose something simpler today, to hopefully get done more quickly so I could move onto other work. I had this postcard already with a light blue background that I did back a-whiles. Otherwise, this was essentially an all-white study.

I didn’t care for the dark shadow on the left, so I lightened it. True to my MO, after a while I stopped looking and started inventing. I’m not so sure that is a horrible thing, since I don’t want to be a super realistic painter anyway, but all the looking I did on this didn’t seem to translate. I wanted more color, but everything I put in I eventually painted over.
