Leafy Sea Dragon Watercolor – Coming along!
Yesterday I worked on my leafy seadragon some more. I filled in more of the water that shows between its body and leafy appendages. I also started working on his eggs. I say “his” because in case you didn’t know, male leafy sea dragons carry the fertilized eggs from the female until they mature. Then the male gives birth to new baby seadragons. They are a relative of seahorses who do the same thing. Pretty cool, huh? (Too bad we women can’t do that with our young! Ha, ha.) 😉
When I finish this painting, I will tell you more about their biology…er…seadragon biology, that is.
here is a common seadragon ink drawing I doodled yesterday. I believe they are called “common” because they only have a few leafy appendages. I just love these little creatures.
Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! 🙂
