In my studio I have a lot of lilies and when they blossom they give quite a performance. Sometimes I like to make sketches, take photos or paint them. And, as the shells are my dearest subject, I combined those two in a composition, adding two apples for color balance.
The painting is made on special oil painting cardboard, with fine oil colors, and it was done as a live lesson for my pupils which I was teaching at that time.
