Hey Steemians!

Week 30 of #zencolouringcontest starts now!

Each week I will provide a stencil to be coloured in with no restrictions on the medium used, with a chance to win 45% of this posts payout and the weeks' donations for 1st place.

To add a little twist and interaction within the community, there will be a featured colour each week, picked at random from entrant's choices. This colour must be used in some way in your interpretation (use as little or as much of the featured colour as you like).

The featured colour this week is Purple

This week the stencil was inspired by sea life and the ocean. I made layers from the surface to the sand and rock beneath, I then added some coral and small creatures. Finally I added a couple of larger creatures and some bubbles. It was drawn mostly with the multi-brush set to '7' to represent the 7 seas!

Have fun, but most importantly have a relaxing zen-colouring sesh!
