#37,#38 Sea Shells - Sheryl Hawkins

oil on canvas 5X7
oil on canvas 8X10

These are both oils painted on canvas.  I think actually that both would benefit from being painted on masonite to help with the smallest details. On masonite, the brush easily glides instead of the bumpiness that can show on canvas. Still, they were fun to paint and I wanted to use the beach glass to work on reflection and translucence.

Wow, Sheryl! These are beautiful. I love both of them...the first makes me feel so sunny and happy. You're so lucky you live by the ocean! The second painting has an old-world feel...love the details in the wall and the shading in the bowl.
