On the easel ~ Pacific Underwater painting progress

Don't all New Years start with a new promise?   I'm not sure what adventures will unfold for the upcoming months.  I'm an optimist myself and feel we make our own destiny.   

My plan for this year is much like the years past; work harder, be more creative and pave a new path. (and be darn careful what you wish for, ha ha ha)

I'm back at work on my new Pacific underwater painting for the time being.   This subject matter still proves to be a learning experience as I go.  

As soon as I finish the kelp visible here in the photo, I'll be adding the underwater critters.   I have no photo reference to study and work from.   I've studied the critter and drawn it out according to observation.  I think I have good understanding of the anatomy and her design function or movements through the water.   

I should think it will take another several days to complete the kelp and I will add in the critters.  (Yup, it's a surprise unless you've kept up with my travels and articles here.)   I'll repost updates as time permits. 

For all those I have not had the pleasure of chatting with, I wish you and yours a healthy, prosperous New Year!
