These seashell paintings were created with watercolor in 1996. Each artwork was created with a variety of colors and washes. The first painting utilizes a muted background and textured watercolor on the shells. The second seashell painting incorporates the white of the paper for highlights and the background. The third piece of watercolor art uses alternating vibrant and muted colors, textures, and other techniques to form 3 unique seashells with a sunlit background. Allowing the watercolor to flow freely around the paper adds unique and interesting shapes and patterns to each artwork.
