|Cockles and Mussels|
Painting Size 15" x 11"
I recently watched the new DVD by Birgit O'Connor demonstrating how to paint sand, rocks and sea glass. I designed my own composition incorporating Cockle and Mussel shells and am quite pleased with the texture created in my first effort.

I have painted another Glory vine similar to the one that I posted here last week just to make sure I had remembered some of the texture techniques. This time I went portrait and bigger. When all was finished I took a deep breath as I used some real glory vine leaves as a stencil and stamped them onto the pristine white space left for this purpose on the lower left. Lucky they worked without needing any touch ups so that they remained fresh.
