And some coral.....

I've added the "branches" that the Seahorse is hangin' out on. It's a type of Coral w/ polyps, but I don't know what kind it is. SO, any of my knowledgeable diving friends, what is it??? I hate not knowing what I am painting. The color is not exactly right in this pic, but it's just gonna have to do for now!!:)

Seahorse Painting

I've had this one drawn out for about 2 weeks and have just been dying to do the background on it. The Sea Horse is BRIGHT yellow w/ some oranges. Then the limbs of the coral are whites and tans. I think this will be beautiful...I sure hope so. It's an odd size...16" x 46". I'll start the seahorse real soon. :)
