Clam Shell No. 6

This 6x6 daily painting is another one of my heavily textured ones (like an earlier one I posted), but shows the inside of the shell instead of its reverse side. Again, it uses acrylic modeling paste for the water, fine garnet gel for the sand, and is heavily varnished on only the water and shell for that "wet look." We acquired this shell (along with many others) while living on the East Coast. Makes me yearn for steamed clams and drawn butter!
