Atlantis by DawnstarW Atlantis by DawnstarW
Finally finished!
I wanted to have the viewer to make their own story with this piece. The colors are actually much more vivid in person then how it turned out with the scanner. Either way I really like how this came out.

Materials Used:
Watercolor paper (11x14 inches)
watercolors

EDIT: Before I forget again, the center panel with the clown fish is actually inspired by a brilliant photo by
:iconbenjamin12282: called Killer Grasp [link] . Of course his photo is much more vibrant then I can ever hope to get my watercolors without them looking muddy looking.

Edit: SOLD

Beautiful! I love the colours you've used, and the way you've painted the anenome. Seriously, I'm sitting here trying to figure out how you managed to get it to work so perfectly like that, white border and everything.

Fantastic job on this. I love the colors and the composition. The composition is actually my favorite part - along with the realism and the subject matter. (I love clown fish) :D

You certainly handle watercolors better than I do :P
