All creatures Great and Small,
All Things Wise and Wonderful,
The Lord God Made Them all. Cecil Frances Alexander 1818-1895

:wave: Thanks for the lovely refs and for hosting Christine. I'm on a marine animal kick this week and chose to do the Parrot Fish and the Sea Turtle. The fish is 4-1/4" 4-1/4" on Strathmore 140 lb. and the turtle is 6"x9" on Canson Montval 140 lbs. On both I chose to use Daniel Smith Interference and Iridescent watercolors. I also added Fotosketcher frames. They both were done in under 3.5 hrs.
Also would someone please tell me how they are getting the watermark copyright added to their works?

They are both wonderful Kate but the beautiful turtle is my favourite. I especially love how you did the water.

Kate both are bold and beautiful! Well done on capturing the magnificent colors of the aquatic species.......using the interference colors, the paintings in real, must show a lovely glow. Great texture of the deep blue sea.

Beautiful colours, the little turtle is very well done, love the contrast between the blue of the sea and the brown of the turtle.
