Beach Pebbles


I have selected and painted some of my pebbles. Each time I go for a walk on the beach I carefully choose a few lovely pebbles to bring home. It might be their colours, or it might be the pattern or it is the smooth rounded shape....but when I find the right one ....I just have to have it. I really like the grey ones with white circles and stripes, they are probably my favourites.
After selecting the ones to draw I placed them in the circular shape on my paper, and I do love this little arrangement, it turned out perfect.
I used acrylic paints. Press for larger view.

Gorgeous! As are your shells below. I really like the way you compose these objects on the page too.

What fun shapes and colors on these! Must have been really enjoyable to render. I, too, love the way you compose your findings on the page as you paint. Beautiful.

Lovely pebbles, such interesting details and colors... and the arrangement too, probably the best way to present them.
Best regards,

Those colours are so lovely in combination, very subtle without being dull. Nature is the best source of inspiration and your drawings are always a delight.

Hello Milly,

Of course, I agree with all the prior comments. The pebbles and beach shells are perfect inspirations for your beautiful drawing and painting.

Lots of serenity in that circle of pebbles. I am pretty busy right now, and was so glad to look at your creation and immediately feel calmer.

Many thanks! xo
