Leafy Sea Dragon Watercolor FINISHED!!
Well, here he is! These are found mostly in the waters of southern Australia. So I was looking for an Australian male name since it is the male of the species that carries and gives birth to the babies. However, I couldn’t find one that I liked right now. But I have always liked the name Leif! So I think that is what I shall call him.
This was really one of the toughest paintings I’ve ever done. So much detail! But that is what keeps me focused. This project was relaxing, though, so that’s all that matters to me!
They come in a variety of other colors and the one I painted had a lot of brown spots.
And before you go, check out this short video of a real leafy sea dragon “swimming.” Even though they have unusual looking fins, they mostly just float around. Also, the second link is to a wonderful site where you can learn a lot more about this amazing creature!
Thanks to all of my newest followers! I appreciate everyone’s support.
Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! 🙂
