BW04: Beach Shell

Sharon Mann from the blog Make Art…Magic Happens has surely created magic with this drawing using tones of gray to produce a beautiful beach scene featuring a person’s hand holding a mussel shell. This could easily be a New Zealand scene and I guess it could be many other places around the world too!

Where The Waves Take Me

I’d already drafted the above post when I re-found a photo that Pete Hillman had posted last year; I was amazed how beautifully it tied in with Sharon’s drawing, almost like its a photo of the shell on the beach before the person’s hand had picked it up.

I really love Pete’s title, Where The Waves Take Me. What a sense of mystery!
