Seahorse studies



Seahorse studies   pencil & watercolour A3   ©2012Lisa Le Quelenc


I'd forgotten about some photos that I had taken some years ago at an aquarium of these little fellows. I stumbled across them recently and whilst the photographs were a little out of focus and dark there was just enough information coupled with memory to produce this couple of studies.

They are such beautiful, graceful and shy creatures. I wish I could remember where I saw them so that I could go back again to observe them.

Thank you Jeanette, they are enchanting animals aren't they, I could watch them for hours.


Hi Judy, thank you! :o)

Lovely work on these - such magical creatures. These and cuttle fish (changing color all the time) are my favorites :) I guess I prefer the smaller things to the large sharks, whales and rays.

Thank you Rhonda. You've gotten me thinking now cuttlefish and rays.... I love rays! It's the part of the Oceanarium (a big aquarium in town) where I linger the longest. They look so friendly and inquisitive.
