2 of 4 : Sea Creatures

I've been busy on a few new projects over the last month. I wanted to share 2 in the series of 4 sea creatures that I just finished painting. I feel like this was the first time that I've created a painted 'series'. They wouldn't look even half as good without brian helping me out with the backgrounds ;) I illustrated the different coral varieties and the seahorse + fish with a very fine tip pen. Then to create the paintings Brian added layers + textures and the most beautiful colors to my black and white drawings. And last, I painted my illustrations onto the wood surface to end up with these beauties! I have lots of ideas for these 4 creatures. Next step, preparing the paintings to make into jewelry. I'll post the other 2 paintings tomorrow!
