Another Day Another Painting
It was supposed to be a rainy day today but low and behold the sun came out. A perfect opportunity for another practice session on the deck.
Found my reference photo....decided to do another fish. Made my sticker again and started painting. In the background were out of focus coral formations and plant life.
When finished the background off with the sticker to concentrate on the fish and the details.
I found this one difficult due to the iridescent detail on the photo. I thought I was done and had all the border tape taken off except the bottom when I decided that the area under the fish needed to be darker.
After I scanned this painting into the computer I checked my values by converting it to black and white. Low and behold I was missing a really light value so this painting is a bit flat.
Well that's why I keep practicing.
