My creative space: shells

I've acquired a bit of a shell collection - the small ones are perfect for carrying in your handbag for a bit of drawing practice on the run - and I thought I'd paint some of them for my new zine. They're watercolour on watercolour paper and were definitely a challenge to draw!

I think I'm going to paint two more collections for my zine - commemorative teaspoons and...hmm...any ideas for the other one?

To see more creative spaces head on over to the "our creative spaces" blog.

Happy Thursday!


  1. They're really lovely, you've captured them perfectly!

  2. well done you these look so gorgeous I cant wait for your zine to go to print. I am working with driftwood at the moment it has such great texture and curves, you may like to collect a couple on a beach stroll for some sketching? They seem to dance.

  3. i agree, hard to draw, but yours are great.

  4. the shells are lovely - I remember my mother had a pair of the spotted ones when I was little....wonder what happened to them?
