Learn how to draw Seaweed


SeaweedsmallContinuing the August at the seaside theme, here is a video showing how to draw seaweed.

YouTuber Cindy Jenks, asked me if it is Sargassum muticum, the invasive species from Japan. My reply was that I hoped so as that might make the video go viral!

Of course it’s not any particular type of seaweed. It has bladders so it is a kind of bladderwrack, but the video is mainly to show you how to build up the shape from simple lines.
