To continue the ocean theme I seem to be on with a different, looser style for me. This painting was inspired by some work I saw from Welsh Artist Alison Fennel. Seahorses range in size from 1.5 to 35.5 cm. They are named for their equine appearance with bent necks and long snouted heads followed by their distinctive trunk and tail.Although they are bony fish, they do not have scales, but rather thin skin stretched over a series of bony plates, which are arranged in rings throughout their bodies. Seahorses swim upright and use their tail to anchor .The sketch is a quick pencil sketch for proportions and then direct to watercolor without ink.
