evolution paintings -- day #3

On Wednesday we painted the next in our series of Evolution paintings, inspired by the book Our Family Tree: an Evolution Story by Lisa Westberg Peters, illustrated by Lauren Stringer. My painting is above, J's in the middle, and Zoo Boy's at the bottom.

Quoted from the book:

"As the seas rose and fell, our family changed again.

On the outside, we had scales to protect us, and fins -- two on each side -- to swim against strong currents. On the inside, we had spiny backbones that helped us move as freely as we do today."
