Here is another small painting on a 6″ x 6″ canvas of a Shark’s Eye. This sweet little shell actually bores a hole in unlucky clam shells to acquire its meal. That is why you might see a small hole in a clam shell lying on the beach. I know even a shell has to eat, but that kind of creeped me out.
I painted this shell using acrylics and have since been using oils. Today is another day of painting a small shell on a small canvas. You can see how the oils lend themselves to a looser style in the previous post of the Nerite shell. I am so enjoying a more free brush stroke. Probably because the paint doesn’t dry so quickly. Here’s to free, loose brush strokes! Happy Friday!
