July Art Bead Scene Challenge

I have been following the Art Bead Scene for a while now and have challenged myself make an entry for the month. This month's painting is Still Life with Shells by Balthasar van der Ast.

For this months entry I wanted to make beads with swirls in them to resemble shells. I combined the colors of red, orange, and taupe to make coin shaped swirled beads. The swirling gives the beads a shell like look and mixes the colors to give the beads a more painterly look. I am pleased with the way that the beads look.
