Shells are interesting and complex models. Their surface is smooth and shiny in places: this helps us observe, on the same object, the various ways in which light is refelcted as it falls on both rough and smooth surfaces.
There are still many seashells to discover on the north coast of South Africa
My co-host Maree Clarkson’s
Saturday Chat was my inspiration to draw these shells. (work is from direct life observation.)
