Amended whelk

Because I second guess myself all the time, the more I looked at the original whelk shell done in oil, the more I felt it needed adjusting.  The benefit a few days and a bit of distance as it sits on a shelf across the studio are often useful in provided sober second thought.

So this is the adjusted shell.  More colour, less colour, more shadow, less shadow.  Its an age old dance in the art of creating art

And I thought it was good before. A lot more definition now. Perfect.
