The detail is amazing, Andrea. Lots of information, but conveyed in a very painterly style. Lovely work!

Thank you Seok, really lovely to hear from you again :) I aimed to paint Strandline large and loose - to describe the shape, form and colour of the various seaweeds, sponges and cuttlefish, without approaching or going down the photorealism route.
