painting "seashells"

seashells - mixed media painting

Last week we did a two day hike on the West Coast of New Zealand. This world heritage area is huge, wild and undeveloped.

We spent day 1 walking through rivers and incredible rain forest.

And day 2 we spent walking along the coast - boulder hopping, beach combing, rock pool splashing and watching seals and dolphins and all sorts of lovely sea birds.

When I'm by the sea I can't help fossicking. By the time I got back to the car, my pockets were filled with little treasures.

So, onto the next page in my 'In My Backyard' sketchbook with a marine background and lots and lots of shells drawn on top.

The making of "seashells"
