I’m happy to say that I’ve wrapped up the largest oil painting I have done so far. All in all I’m very proud of the way it turned out, as it really helped me stretch and expand as an artist! In the top photo I finished the details in the coral and the two spotted dolphins in the foreground. And in the final photo I added in a plethora of reef fish and bubbles throughout the painting.
This is very close to the original vision that I had in my head before I started. Continue reading to see the initial sketch and the final product!
And the best part is…I did it all with a palette knife!!! Such a blast! 🙂
Thanks for following me as I have been painting this beautiful coral reef! It was cool to see my process advance as I added in the details.
I hope you all have a wonderful July 4th!
Until next time,
let’s bring some color into the world!
