6x24" Shells ... Coming along slowly!

I finished laying down all the color on the surface. The Colourfix primer is fairly grainy and not taking the pencil as smoothly as I had hoped. My next step is brushing solvent over the areas, one color at a time so they don't run into each other. Then I go over them with pencil(s) to add more color and fill in the textured surface showing through. I'm working right to left, I'm not sure you can see my progress in this image. My final step will be to pull out a few shells for my focal point and let the rest of the hodge podge sink into the background!

Kendra, this is looking great!I can see the difference in the finished right hand side of the piece. I love this type of "up close & personal' composition. Looking forward to the finished art.
