The 2nd one is One a did a while back, it reminds me of the sea!
The 3rd is kinda volcanic, and that was the first on of this style i did!
The 4th well that is just a painting i did today, it took ages because of the detail in the corner.
The 5th is just a load of foil milk tops stuck in a fish scale design then then let to dry and painted!
