Potbellied Seahorse-Postcards for the Lunch Bag

Today, my hubby took a pot bellied seahorse in his lunch bag. You heard that right – it’s also called a big bellied seahorse. You can’t make this stuff up! They’re the largest horse in Australia, noted for their large, swollen bellies and larger than usual snouts. They aren’t capable of eating anything larger than their snout so that extra size is necessary.

I drew this guy loosely with pencil then painted the water around it, layering sleeping turquoise blue, lunar blue, cerulean blue and undersea green. The seahorse spots are piemontite genuine and lunar blue with cerulean blue for shading.
