Cameos have been on my mind. Here is my made up cluster of cameo pins. This was fun to work on in my sketchbook tonight. I want to go back in tomorrow and add some shadows and finish up a couple of the faces. Cameos carved from shell are my favorite. Typically oval in shape, a cameo consists of a portrait in profile carved in relief on a background of a different color.

Mixed media in my sketchbook ~ Cameos ~ watercolor, pencil, pastels, marker, and gesso.
