Last year I participated in Summer of Color 2013 a handful of times. This summer I am determined to keep up and post about every week. This is week one and the colors are Aqua Blue, Yellow and a touch of Hot Pink.
I thought a tropical fish would be fun and was thrilled to find a refernce photo of a yellow fish with a dash of hot pink on it. I used watercolor, Sharpie, pencil and white gel pen. I found this process quite difficult because I tried to make the fish as realistic as I could. It would have been mush easier had a invented my own fish, I suppose.
After days of layering on different mediums trying to get the right look this is about as good as it gets and my inner voice says "PUT THE PEN/BRUSH DOWN."
Here is the final result. I'm not one to bash my own work, my philosophy on confidence is that is you are not confident, fake it (this in itself is a form of confidence, no?)
Anyway, before I ramble (further,) I think this is just "meh."
It can only get better from here.
See you next week.
