Series of Rays and edge of tide continues

I started the manta and sting ray collection late this summer and it is continuing with new challenges. The largest one yet is this new one of one ray gliding over the sand in the shallows of the tide. First, I paint the sandy bottom, then add shells and fish and rays with a cool blue shadows. Then I make the refraction highlights on the sand and under the ray. The last part is the reflection of the sky hitting the top of the water with highlights.  "Ray Close to Shore" is 36x48".  "Starfish Under Shallows" and "Starfish Fishing" are both 24x24".
