The Ocean

Okay, this art journal page-inspired by the ocean theme and watercolors took longer to plan then actually complete. 
I've been staring at this blank journal page all week wondering what was going to happen. I quickly swirled on ocean waves and then traced them with a white China marker. Then I added the purple fish moving upward across the page to add some movement to the painting. Finally I splattered on some paint to get some texture and then used a little spray bottle with more blue paint and shimmer medium. After spritzing that on the entire picture & dabbing with a paper towel- it was finished. I could possibly add more details the fish, but I think I'll leave it alone. Maybe some journaling in black ink? That might be fun!
