Oyster with pearl

1516807748263This oyster was created from a painting of an old piece of wood. I was invited by an  artist friend to a painting class which took place in a very beautiful Hampshire (UK) village in the countryside.

The theme of the morning was to paint a piece of wood placed on a table in the middle of the room and every artist present could choose in which medium to paint the proposed still life. I chose watercolours.At the end of the session, I had a good look at the result and liked the colours but not the overall painting.I turned it upside down and suddenly I could see the shape of an oyster appearing… That was it …several hours later the oyster and its pearl were replacing the not so inspiring chunk of wood !
