It is a special joy to do critter paintings of dolphins, koi, giraffes, sea turtles, birds and butterflies.
Sometimes I paint with oils and other times i do watercolor paintings.
An amazing critter is the Leafy Sea-dragon. They
are native on the coral reef of Australia. They are a quiet animal
related to the Sea Horse.
They quietly camouflage themselves in their leafy appendages
and wait for small fish to come by so they can suck them up.
Do you see two leafies in this critter painting? The one on the left is camouflaging himself in the sea sponges and rocks.
“Leafy” is painted with watercolor on Claybord.
