9x12 oil of shell, water, ink bottle.

This painting clocked in at 45 min. as well, which surprised me. Thought it would be faster than the previous one.
By only looking at the first painting while I did this I made a number of changes that were simply judgement calls: injected more color, made the glass taller, the shell less fussed over and smaller etc.
