Drawing Shells 1
Every day I took a walk on the beach and collected shells, and sometimes other things like pieces of horseshoe crab and wood, in my bucket. I washed them off and let them dry, and in the evening I would draw. The first night I started with one conch piece and drew it a few times from several viewpoints. The shadows made by the irregular edges were interesting too.
We took the ferry to Okracoke Island and found many many interesting oyster shells there.
I also really enjoyed sketching the water-worn shells, full of hieroglyphic-like marks.
