Sketching at the Monterey Bay Aquarium

One of the many joys of living in Monterey is community week at the Monterey Bay Aquarium.  My sketch group gathered there to draw the fascinating fishes and plants exhibited there.  I wish I could have stayed all day!  I'll definitely be returning to sketch again soon.

Warm-up sketch of various fishes at the Monterey Bay Habitats exhibit.

Common Mures are lovely birds. They are in the same exhibit with lots of gorgeous puffins, but these little birds called to my paintbrush instead.

Various fishes of the Open Sea exhibit include a Pacific Bluefin Tuna and Ocean Sunfish. They are HUGE and incredible to see if you ever get the chance. Very humbling.
