The little fish have been added. I may add more later. Back to the ocean floor and turtles, then back to the water and fish. Having fun with this one!
I am often asked how long it takes me to finish a painting. I kept track of this one for fun and it took 43 hours. Of course, I was using 5 different reference photos and am not likely to do that again. Light was coming from different directions for one thing and I had to make adjustments.
Not moving along so quickly. (Have been helping an elder client transition from Rehab.)
This one will be 22 x 30". Nice to get back to plumeria after many koi, wave, and Kauai landscape paintings. (Small prints for those are on paintingsbymarcia.etsy.com). Starting light with the flowers. Composition is from 5 photos of this variety so will add shadows later so everything makes sense.
