OK, one more "sea monster" painting, this time an elasmosaur, a long-necked plesiosaur.
Here's the finish first. There are some caustic effects on the back, with a few fish scattering before those long snaking necks.
I'm showing two hunting in tandem, with a surprise-attack technique of lifting the head up in murky water to grab fish from below. I had to control the values to make the colors get lighter as they go farther back in the water.
Check out your newsstand for the October issue of Ranger Rick magazine to see the paintings!
