I dug up these two small batik pieces today - I hadn't seen them for a very long time. They are based on a species of nudibranc (sea slug) called Chromodoris magnifica - quite a common nudibranc but still very beautiful. I am not sure why I didn't do more of these... I like the idea taking a small area to examine the colour, patterns and textures, rather than the whole thing.

I saw my first Nudibranchia last summer, and couldn't believe my eyes. Your batiks are brilliant.

Thank you for the compliment! I am thinking of doing more nudibranc inspired images. They really are the jewels of the sea with their incredible colouration and patterns.
