Sketch of a Seahorse, Art Sketches Daily, December 15 Sketchbook...



Here is a sketch of a seahorse.  I love seahorses!  I'm not sure why it was hanging out upside down in my reference, but I decided to sketch it as shown...  It is in my tiny sketchbook that measures 3.5x5.5 inches.   I'm unsure if I'll paint it or not, but I did enjoy sketching it.


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in December.  This is day 15.  

This is a sketch in colored pencils.  You may see some of my finished paintings at lisarusso.com if you'd like.  I will be juxtaposing my usual rough sketches with the colored pencil sketches at varying intervals.  I tend to sketch very lightly, so these and my usual pencil ones are darkened a bit in photoshop for online viewing.

Thanks so very much, sorry I didn't adjust it dark enough for some monitors, if I get a chance I'll maybe try to darken the actual sketch and re-scan and re-darken. My initial lines tend to be very soft.
