Thanks guys, here's one last Seashell drawing I did, in pencil this time. I still focused on the contour lines and it's a bit smudged so I hope it comes out good enough quality to see the detail.

Part of my project was refining and developing my ideas and I had to find an organic form to draw from so I choose Wild Mushrooms (random idea I know but they looked cool outside). So I took a picture of the gilles and actually drew every single one of the mushroom, and as you can see it's got quite a lot of them. It is done in biro.

I really enjoy the way you hatch and cross hatch on your seashells. It really defines it and makes it pop out in a unique way that captures that beauty of still life.

Thanks, I used cross-hatching instead of regular shading because it definetly matches with contour lines than regular, as hatching is also a pattern of lines.

A water colour painting of a rose I've done recently, needs a bit of touch up though.

That rose is amazing. It may have been difficult to scale down to small square armatar size since it's handmade, but it would have been a beautiful addition to the collection.

Thanks for the feedback guys, I don't usually paint as it is my weak spot when it comes to art but I'm starting to enjoy watercolour now a lot. My parents want to buy it off me now but it's for my course aha.
I looked more into roses because of their fragility, delicacy and beauty. I'm look for ways I can give new meanings for organic forms i.e in this sculpture creating a rose out of wire and glass which is the opposite to it's true form if you get me. The wire is joined just by twists no soldering/welding and the broken glass is stuck with a glue gun and glass glue.

What did you use to color the glass? Is that watercolor as well?

Watercolour didnt provide the right affect so I used ink instead.
