Bright blocky acrylic brushwork portrays this spiny seahorse. From my diving days this was one of my favourite creatures to encounter. They are easy to miss, anchored to the weed, camouflaged amongst the colourful reef and swaying gently to and fro in the gentle current. Watching them makes you feel very tranquil, combined with the excitement of knowing you are getting a rare treat!
