Rocks and shells

I painted another rock watercolor. I added a shell and a piece of a shell this time. The shadow on the top rock is ALL WRONG! I was experimenting and it went bad...ah well...lessons to learn. I want to be more experimental in my painting..."what if I..." sort of painting. But I have to be willing to live with it. I was wondering what it would look like if I made a large shadow, and it doesn't work. I enjoy painting in a series. I believe I learn more when I do. And I have so much to learn about watercolors!

But I do like the shell. That was fun to paint and try to make it dimensional.
