Here’s a couple of shell studies started in VB and finished up in LC.
This shell was done in the Studio with the Beach added from imagination. “Beach Shell”, acrylics on 5×7″ stretched canvas.
I set the shell up in a box with single point lighting and treated it as a Still Life. “Studio Shell”, acrylics on 6×6″ stretched canvas.
Here are my acrylic paintings from 2019, from Las Cruces, NM. They are painted on various surfaces, including Canvas Boards, Hardboard Panels, and Stretched Canvas. I try to use a better quality of paints, mediums, varnishes, and surfaces to enhance longevity of the piece. All acrylic paintings have an isolation layer applied to protect the paint. Each one is varnished. The varnish may be removed with household ammonia and reapplied if it becomes damaged or yellows (usually after several decades). Because of the isolation layer, the paint will be safe from this process.
