Shark Reef

Reef Shark 
3 1/2" x 5"
W&N Watercolour Markers on paper

Used some google images and varied them a lot, didn't really stick close enough to them for anything but the gesture. Made up the coral shapes entirely along with the assorted plants growing on them, played with colors and paper and washes. Found out this lighter weight Stillman & Birn paper still stands up well to the washes and makes for a lovely undersea look. Really had fun with this shark thing, going to be doing more small paintings in W&N markers too.

Today's going to be busy with Johannes Vloothuis class "Essentials of Painting Cityscapes" class two and then home care coming in the afternoon, so I painted early and fast. Tomorrow I might get dusty again.
