Sometimes the best thing you can do is ruin a painting. Why? Because the pressure's off. The work is already toast, why not mess around with it a little more and experiment--maybe try an approach or technique you haven't tried before?
This painting began as a watercolor on heavyweight Fabriano paper. I wasn't happy with it, so I sprayed it heavily with fixative to isolate the paper surface, then overpainted with oil. The watercolor acts as an underpainting and the oil allows a range of subtle color and value that better captures the beautiful porcelain-like quality of the shell. I'm much happier with it now. I just hope nobody heard the cussing earlier.
