The Deep

For Viceroy's sketch set titled "The Deep" i did 15 watercolor paintings. These paintings are very, very small, only 2.5" x 3.5".  For this set, which is intended to show sea life, I decided to do a theme for my sketches. All of my aquatic creatures are prehistoric! I had a lot of fun working on this set and I'm very proud of my tiny sketches. The most fun was learning about each one. We often hear about dinosaurs, but we hear much less about all the life that was in the water. If you look up any of these creatures, you may be surprised to see how big they are. Something that may just look like an ugly fish turns out to be the size of a whale, which completely changes your perspective of the creature.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on these, and if you are someone who ended up owning any of these from buying the Viceroy packs or finding these for sale online, I'd love to hear from you. I really enjoy hearing where these sketches end up. :)
