View Full Version : WDE Jan 18/14 Conch

My first WDE, and the images were just what I needed on a cold winter's day. This was done on 9 x12 paper with graphite. It was difficult to choose an image as there was so many that tempted me. Thanks for the great references!

Great drawing of the conch. Will u
You be adding color?

Another question....if you're from North Dakota, why the Canadian flag?

Your drawing is wonderful. I'm glad you joined WDE. I only just rejoined recently and I think you will find that this is a great way to get the creative spirit going.

Thanks everyone! Guess I need to finish updating my profile as we just recently moved to Williston North Dakota from Alberta (hubby's job was the reason), and since I am not working I want to spend my time doing more art. Looking forward to participating more! Varli I may paint it or doing it in colored pencils would be fun as well, but we will see as since doing this I have a couple of ideas stirring regarding some Saskatoon (Juneberry) blossoms that I took reference photos last year.

Didn't see this before I saw your pastel today. I chose the same conch shell to paint in pastel a few years ago and was so pleased with it, each of my daughters-in-law have one framed in their bathroom. Love your drawing, and you might consider doing it in pastel.
