Blue Sea Star and Corals (Lady Elliot Island)


Blue Sea Star and Corals (Lady Elliot Island) Original Oil on Canvas board 41cm x 31cm

Robyn’s Inspiration: This was a very challenging painting, specifically because of the complexity of the coral. Typically, these Blue Linckia Sea Stars hang out on the coral often in the shallows. An adult can be the size of a  dinner plate and instead of feeling soft and velvety they are hard and feel quite brittle. They can be seen quite often in the shallows of Lady Elliot Island and are a delight to paint.  There were hours of painstaking work in this little painting – in fact I could have done a quite large painting in the time it took me to complete it”.
