Twinkle Twinkle, celebrating (you guessed it) COLOR! This is the 4th year of SOC, but my first time participating. Each week a color palette is announced as a creative prompt. This week's colors are Red & Royal Blue with a Smudge, Splash or Pop of Light Blue
I can't believe it's week 5 already! I'm already getting nervous about what's going to keep me busy once this challenge is over.
I'm very happy with my entry this week.Unlike last week, as soon as I saw the palette, I knew what I wanted to paint, and the whole thing went along...swimmingly. (Pun! Zing!)
I had to include a close-up of the face because I think this is just the cutest fish face ever. Does anyone else baby-talk to pet fish the way we tend to do do with dogs and cats? "Who's a good widdle fishy? Blubber is! Yes he is! Blubber's a good boy!" No one? Just me? Fine.
I made an animation of the process, too. The compression makes it look kind of cruddy, but you get the idea of the progression of it. This was a rare occasion where I did the whole painting in one loooooong (8 hour) session. There were snack and potty breaks, but otherwise I was in a major painting trance.
I think it makes a particularly lovely pillow.
