Shells are in colour and I am playing around with backgrounds.....what do you think?

Hi Everyone....

I am always fascinated about how much a background can change an illustration....something so simple as a different colour or tone can add so much or sometimes even take away from a piece....so today I finished adding some colour to my shell illustrations and decided to show you how much fun it can be playing around with backgrounds....I could honestly go on and on with this fun little exercise .....this is also something we do when we work on surface designs for art licensing.....oftentimes you may have the same design in a variety of colours to meet the needs of all of the consumers....so what do you think? what is your favorite background here........






 I love shells and I think my favorite background is the first one and the fourth one....it highlights the shells and I immediately think of the beach when I look at them......

Hope you are all having a super amazing day......I would love for you all to also join me on my Illustration Page on Facebook........Thank you all for being here....

Hi Diana! I love all of them, but the two that popped out to me were the blue and the brown. :) The blue because I'd like to put my feet in the ocean right now and the brown, because, well, it looks like chocolate! xo
