17 of 30 Banded Tulip (Broken Shell Series)


Never Too Old to Blush (Banded Tulip Shell)
4" X 6"
Watercolor
$75

When the spire of a shell is broken off, the architecture within looks like a partially opened flower bud. This shell is sun-bleached and its lines nearly faded away, but it may have been a banded tulip shell, though it seems a bit sturdier, or thicker than the typical tulip.

I loved how the light in my reference photo caught the edges in this photo while bringing a glow to the shell from within, hence the title.
