She Sells Sea Shells

Jay Taylor

Derbyshire, United Kingdom

Artist's Description

…on the sea shore.
The shells she sells are sea shells, I’m sure!

From the ‘Inspired Spirals’ Collection

This series of paintings was inspired by a challenge to limit my usual range of colours to the four-colour range used by a friend of mine: yellow ochre, black, white and burnt sienna. I tried using them unmixed, and it really wasn’t working for me – so I mixed them to a colour-range that I found more appealing to work with, and the fun began… (and yes, I know, the embellishments are cheating – but I couldn’t help myself :-))
