#21, 22, 23 Seashell Trio- Sheryl Hawkins

I know we are encouraged to stay with one medium, and while I do spend much of my painting time on watercolors, I also love to use oils. I have seen other artists mixing mediums here- so I decided why waste the paintings! This last week or so, I have been working with oils and mostly from life instead of photos. I am still looking at the same aspects of the paintings as I would in watercolor- reflection, shine, detail, etc. As you may have noticed from the paintings I post, I particularly enjoy detailed subjects. I will try to continue mixing in scenes with larger views also!

I love your seashells...very dramatic against the black background. (I didn't know we were supposed to stick with one medium...I thought we were supposed to try different things! Oops...)

Beautifully done, Sheryl. It was definitely worth stepping outside the "boundaries"!
