Pouring an Undersea Garden in Watercolour

This month at the Monterey Centre the class is working on pouring the background of their painting and using negative painting techniques to find invertebrates that live in the intertidal zone or on the ocean floor to create an undersea garden.

Each student is using one of three images as our focus: a sea turtle, an anemone, or a crab. I have included a finished piece of the crab. See if you can find and name some of the sea creatures I was able to find.

This is a challenging class as many find it difficult to create the negative rather than the positive shapes in a painting.

The objective, have fun with it!

Next series is in May, painting "Watercolour Skies", and "Portraits for Beginners" registration begins April 1st"
