Still life - from the sea, river and forest

Starfish, sea urchin, freshwater snail and hermit crab shells and leaf sketches

Leaf, freshwater snail shell, starfish, hermit crab shell and sea urchin shell done in a variety of media: graphite pencil, watercolor pencil, ballpoint pen, fine-liner, brush pen and watercolor. Done on A3 paper.
All are done directly (without pencil sketch) and very quickly so they look.. like they do.
The day before I did this page in my sketchbook:

Sea urchin sketches

I was trying to get better at simplifying and hinting texture with minimal details. Still not satisfied, I have to practice more.
