A Collection of Painted Nudibranches and Flatworms

While photographing California's intertidal invertebrates, Bob realized that the Nudibranches and Flatworms were nearly impossible to photograph out of water. As a result, he decided to take the best picture he could get of each critter and then use paint to try to capture their beautiful appearance. The resulting paintings are shown below and a high-resolution version is available by clicking on the pictures on this page.
