I spent over 2 weeks in the US so much of my sketchbook is from that holiday. I thought I’d have more time to draw but I’m glad I took my pencils with me as I found some interesting objects. This was a shell from the Mermaid Suite, a grandly named shack on an ex 60s hippy commune in Topanga canyon. I was up at 4am with terrible jet lag. I ran out of time to finish it but was quite excited by the sense of depth I was beginning to achieve on the curvy edges at the front of the shell.
