My hardest challenge

I decided to bite the bullet and try a sea shell that I am fond of ... little did I know how challenging it would be. I almost decided it was a lost cause about three times but for some reason I persevered. My AHA came when I realized I was getting too tight and trying to make a photo replica... so when I relaxed and painted the painting and not the photo, I was much happier and I love the results. Hope you enjoy.

Wonderful job with the sea shell, Honor! I tried to paint one once and quickly got frustrated. It's a lot harder than I thought it would be!

That's it! Paint the painting and not to copy...and so hard to remember that when we're in the middle of it all!
