Australian Sea Dragon

Hello Friends!

I just wanted to start this week off with a little watercolor of a different type of sea dragon. As you can see, the Australian Sea Dragon only has a few leafy appendages. Down along the top of a sea dragon’s tail is a dorsal fin that you can see through. In fact, you can’t really see their pectoral fins here which are located on the sides of their necks.

The dorsal fin helps push them through the water. Even though the sea dragon beats this fin quickly, the dragon still moves extremely slow. When it isn’t swimming, it floats through the water and the pectoral fins act as rudders helping them steer. Pretty cool sea creatures I think!

I drew this one with my Prismacolor watercolor pencils.

I am planning to draw some more sharks and some sea horses next. But I also have a story to write for my class and for my last assignment I will be writing an article about the leafy sea dragon! So off to the library I go today after I have lunch with a good friend!

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! πŸ™‚

About whitefeatherfloating

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: https://spreadingmy2wings.wordpress.com Thanks for visiting! :)

    • Thanks, Jill. I did! I had a great mini pizza and salad for lunch and actually got to visit with two friends. I stopped by a different friend’s house who wanted to give me some fresh zucchini out of her garden. So we visited for a bit before I went to lunch. πŸ˜€β™₯️🐒xo
