Speckled corals. Swaying seaweed. Orange and purple anemone that hide clownfish. A riot of color and texture, dotted, wavy, speckled, flowing. With little glistening orange, fuschia, red and purple fish that alternately stand out and blend into the riot of color and texture that make up this watercolor and pen and ink study. An almost abstract work with a dizzying amount of detail to look at over and over again. I created this piece from direct observation at the Monterey Bay Aquarium in California.
This piece pairs beautifully with this other piece also made at the same location:
Lots more sketches from nature, birds, animals flora and fauna in this section of my store:
This is a print of my original sketch done with watercolor, pen and ink. The print is designed to float in a standard sized frame. Image #1 shows a closeup, Image #2 shows the whole piece and Image #3 shows how it would look framed. Printed on Archival Fine Art Paper. The colors of the actual print are richer and more vibrant than this web image. Each print is signed and carefully packed and shipped.
All my sketches are done on-site, from direct observation. The print you will receive is a high-resolution scan of the original and will show all it's natural imperfections (the blot of an inked-in line, a faintly drawn pencil sketch under the watercolor), all integral to the process.
