School: Service High School
I chose to draw a sea shell for this project for many reasons. I found this shell on a beach one day in Hawaii and I really liked the shape and look of it. At first it was difficult to figure out how to draw such a small shell on a big paper. I stippled the shaded areas because I like how different lighting can make the shell look so different in many ways. Every time I moved the shell to find the right lighting, different shadows were portrayed across the shell. The spikes spiraling from the tip to the base of the shell and the little lines show the unique texture and form. Stippling was a great way to express these details and show how the shading is different all around the piece.
