kelp forest illustration


This is a colored version of a sketch from my visit to the Monterey Bay Aquarium in California. The illustration is created with watercolors, pen and ink.  The underwater kelp forest exhibit at the aquarium is amazing.  While I was there, I sketched some of the fish as they hovered and swam through the kelp blades.

    I remember the aquarium, quite a fun place. The three of us went to that seafood joint after visiting the petting section. I guess that would be the next logical step, like the BBQ after the kids zoo. I like how the colors darken as the scene descends. This was the tube exhibit that you sketched, right?

  2. Nate,
    That is the two story kelp forest tube exhibit that I sketched at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. I had a good time visiting the aquarium both times I went. That seafood restaurant was good!

  3. Nice picture of the fish and the kelp. Great depth and color.
