drawing | underwater life / love

·
to know an alga is to love one. i've always looked for an excuse to draw algae, so i do feel chuffed. 
·
i threw in a jellyfish as well. ☻ 
·
{i made do with vintage musical paper for backing, since my blotter ran out of pages. and i've run out of sketchbook too. off to the shops for a new one!}

  6. I like that paper
    it fits the theme so well
    and I love your work
    it always makes me smile
    I think it is because that there is
    music in your lines
    in the way you draw
    and as always I love
    your colors

  8. I love the way you put them in their own page/frame. I was going to draw a jellyfish but really ran out of time so I did a tiny jelly creature. Your jelly fish is awesome. I also really like sea plant life, so I am enjoying your work very much! *smiles* Norma

  10. Dear Nadeschda,
    wonderful drawings! And I like it very much that you've added the names of the seaweed and jellyfish in Latin language... like on old coloured engraving.

    Love,
    Ariane.

    Dear Woolfy are there any plans to print this?
