  Many of us find ocean worlds and the creatures that live in them fascinating. Beautiful sea anemones, enormous whales, frightening sharks, and bizarre looking sea horses; they all have a story to tell and they all fit perfectly into their respective ecosystems. It is not surprising therefore that many of us wish that we could draw some the creatures that live in these watery worlds.
  With the help of Ralph Masiello’s clever pen this is now possible. Indeed it is both easy and fun to do. Simple directions show young artists how to draw a variety of sea creatures including clams, a clownfish, a dolphin, coral, a squid, and more. He shows his readers what the finished picture looks like and explains why kind of colors he used to get the effect show in the pictures. He also has added little boxes on some of the pages which contain artistic tips on how to further embellish artwork to make the final product look wonderful.
