#14 Shell Jar - Sheryl Hawkins


I have been away for Christmas, so got a little behind with posting paintings- but I'm still here!
This watercolor is of one of my favorite subjects, antique mason jars. I collect them and have many in my kitchen- some full of shells or wine corks. Since shells are also one of my favorite things to paint, this jar of shells is perfect for me. I am still working with shiny, reflective surfaces and trying to improve my skills there. This isn't one of my better attempts, but it was fun.

...those shells look so pretty in the mason jar. They make me think of summer and warmth...and everything that goes along with the summer season. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas. Happy New Year!
