It took a long time

For some reason it took me a long time to complete this drawing. Partly because I have been busy with other projects lately. But also, I would only work on this in short spurts. I had difficulty sitting still for this one, as much as I wanted to see the finished product. So now, I am finally calling it finished, although after I live with it a few days I may tweak it a bit more. And I'm off to choose the next drawing subject, not sure what just yet. I still have other projects going on, too. Summer's the time for fixing up the house and yard. Lots to do there while we can, while the sun shines!

It's absolutely gorgeous, and worth the time you spent.
I wonder if it's something in the stratosphere...I haven't been able to concentrate on one thing for more than 30 minute spurts for almost a month!

You did a wonderful job capturing the different textures in this one. Also I love the play of the light on it! nancy

Yet another stunning and ultra-realistic one =) I am not sure how long it took, all I can say is that it's worth it!
Thanks for your comments Ann.

The time you invested shows. It is a beautiful sea-worn shell. All the crevices and holes, the rough parts and the smooth parts - all are so well rendered.

beautiful - even tho it is so deliactely drawn you have captured the rough, brittle nature of the object.
