It includes, among others, the following groups of animals:

  • Mollusks, shells & snails
  • Fishes & sharks
  • Dolphins & whales
  • Jellyfish & others

These can be animals that live at and in the sea, as well as those that live in or near the river or lakes.

Drawing underwater animals

Whether in the water or on the beach, here I have some aquatic animals that add variety to both underwater pictures and beach pictures. Whether it’s crabs, shells, snails or starfish, all of these animals can make an appearance outside of the water and be very decorative as an accessory or a wonderful main subject.

Especially shells and snail shells are very versatile in shape and color and ideal for beach pictures.

Lovingly colored, these animals are of course also beautiful main motifs to decorate their own image. Here offer all art materials that you can imagine.
