Thankyou Tato :)

This little painting has since appeared in a conservation video for 'The Ocean Story'. The story of a sea going vessel called 'Creightons' which has set sail on a voyage to bring knowledge to the world about how we can save our oceans in peril.

Its Acrylic Shalu, a small canvas and I like the way I did the sunlight cascading to the ocean sandy floor, that Ive used this technique in some of my others now. Its real easy to do and really gives the whole scene some bright blessed sunlight. Thanks friend:)

Thankyou The Valient x and Iveta.

My dolphin and wildlife work are more illustrative than fine art but they bring me great joy when creating them. I do love nature and wildlife and hope to be able to paint them in realism soon.


Have a wonderful creative day friends
