Pacific Sea Nettle

Colored pencil on dark blue Colorfix paper.  Around the edge of the painting you can see the paper color.
I used Prismacolors.  On the dome of the jelly where I wanted a smooth, shiny, blended surface, I used a stiff brush to blend the colors together. The painting is 6x6 inches. I took the photo at the Aquarium of the Bay in San Francisco. I am fascinated by these beautiful, monsters of the deep.

It has been a very long time since I really enjoyed doing a painting.  But this was fun, quick and a bit abstract.....making  all of my many practice paintings worth it.
