A colored pencil drawing on linen board 27″x 36″
by June Pauline Zent
I went a little crazy here thinking about all of the animals that I wanted to include so it turned out to be not the usual careful composition. My oldest son was here while I was working on it and I asked him, “Can you think of a name for it” He studied it for a minute and said, “Seaquarium, because it’s a combination of what you would see if both were together” A perfect name!
I hope that you don’t get cross-eyed trying to look at it but this piece was one that I had a lot of fun with. It took about two months to finish because you start with a white board and when you finish it looks kinda like an oil painting. Drawing is my first love and this is just drawing with color. Feel free to critique, I welcome your opinion!
Colorful and fun, Mom. I love it! It makes me want to go diving.
And it’s fun to see you here my Sweet Addie. Yes, hopefully not in a lake like in Calvery. I still shutter when I think of it! The ocean is the place to dive. Are there any reefs around Virginia beach? you used to love diving. Love you and miss you!
I love it, and agree with Addie, it is colorful and fun! It is all in balance, too. You have such detail to all the little sea critters, and sea plants. I really think it is an awesome painting!
And the name “Seaquarium” , is just perfect for this!
I will tell David that you said so. He gave me the name.He will be pleased. Hugs
I will tell David that you said do. He gave me the name. He will be pleased. Hugs
Thank you both Sharon. I worried about posting this one because it’s so full of everything but I couldn’t stop from adding creatures. Thank you for your great comments. They are encouraging! Hugs!
I love it!
Oh, so glad the you do Stefan and so glad that you took the time to say so!
What an apt name. The suggestion rocks… 🙂
I will tell my son, he will be pleased and thank you for coming here to comment
My pleasure. 🙂
Quite relaxing to see this image on a wall, I like the care for details and the jolly colors.
I wouldn’t worry about composition, usually when you look in an aquarium image changes all the time so it illustrates well an aquarium full of life.
Thank you so much for your opinion. I feel kike it’s kind of a happy painting and I am glad that you think so too
I am so glad that you think so! Thanks for coming here.
Wow, June. Absolutely beautiful piece. So vibrant and bright. Your son did a great job naming it! Very fun 🙂
thank you for your encouraging comments. I did have a lot of fun with it. I will tell David what you said. He will be pleased
This is just beautiful. Everything I love right here. David, you did a great job naming the drawing seaquarium.
I just want everything you paint and draw!!!!
Keep writing, you are great at it.
You are my most important encourager. Your opinion means the most to me.Hugs
Can I have a copy of this????????
But of course my sister. You can have a archival print of any of my artwork as soon as I can.
Beautiful, beautiful. It looks perfectly composed and I can’t believe it is pencil! I only started oil painting about 3 years ago… Before that my joy was children’s illustration. Your art work reminds me of this. Full of detail and colour and story telling. I love it!
The beauty of colored pencil is that you are always in perfect control and it can look like a painting instead of a drawing. With oil painting you lose some of that control. All mediums have their advantages and the opposite. Your work looks as if you have been painting much longer; Think what you will achieve down the road. Thank you for your great compliments and for your opinions!
Miss, at first I though what a nice picture it is. but after reading your post, I realized it’s not a picture you took, but you paint, so nice, Miss!
Thank you for that great compliment! It must mean that I got it right for you. And thank you for coming here to post your opinion!
Love the colours 🙂
Thank you Ce’cile I am glad that you do and happy that you come here
Its beautiful and seaquarium is the perfect name!
I love all the colors.
You my friend are blessed with an awesome talent 🙂
Thank you so much for your compliments and I will tell my son that you like the name. I plan to do a series of this combination. I think that people like the name as much as the drawing. He will be excited about that!
Oh! I somehow missed this post. I love this one. It’s so vibrant and happy. 🙂 Nice work!
Smiles to you my friend! So glad that you like it. Yes, I was happy doing it and plan to do more.
