Baby Snail Watercolor painting

Baby Snail
9x12
Watercolor
I started this painting about two weeks ago and I have been working on it a little everyday since then.It finally came to fruition last nigh and I was ready to find a mushroom and fall asleep also. 

I had started with just the idea of the little baby face for a snail, then I added the candy cane like shell. After I had that worked on I realized the snail was not large enough to stand alone and need an environment to live in, I painted a few mushrooms and after letting it sit for a day or two add a few more. It still didn't feel right so I put the baby on a grassy knoll.

The painting is available at my ebay store Delilah's Art for $40.00
