One cubic foot of ocean

Here's a few quick watercolor sketches I did while Pen was napping. National Geographic had this cool story called "Within One Cubic Foot" where they figured out how many living organisms live within one cubic foot of ocean or soil. So these are sketches of some ocean inhabitants. Nat Geo is great for drawing inspiration, I highly recommend. I think I need to invest in some better paints, though. I had to juje these up in Photoshop a bit because the paint dried a bit muddy and bland. Not enough pigment I think.
Right now Chris is out getting our car thoroughly cleaned. I don't think I mentioned that our car was stolen and recovered 3 weeks later! We are so happy to have it back, especially in good condition, but it was soooo dirty. I wish it could tell us about the crazy 3 week adventure it had. Or maybe I don't want to know. Anyway, it was a wonderful surprise to have it back. Hope you all have a peaceful week!
