Just bloggin'...


So, today I won't be painting. It's my youngest daughter's last day w/ me before SNORKEL CAMP!! How cool is that?? Anything to get her ready to dive with me one day!!:)

Anyhow, we are going to my mom & dad's for the day, so no painting. Maybe tonite...


It's driving me crazy to not be painting!! I'm wanting to start on the pectoral fin...I like doing fins like these. I call it "Painting Clear"...That's where I have to paint so that it looks like I'm using "clear" paint, so you can see through the fin.


That painting I've added up there is an example of what I'm talking about. That one is "Juvi Drum" that I did last year. One of my first "fish" paintings. The fins are transparent so you have to paint in a way that you can see through it. It's actually pretty easy to do. I just paint what is in the background, kinda messy, then add very watered down white over that, then add some color to where the veins or lines are in the fin, depending on the color of the fish. Now with the French Angel, I have to do the background of the body of the fish, very blurry, then add the detail of the fin. It should be easy. I wish I could just do it NOW!! But, then I'd never make it to my Mom's...
Tomorrow I'm sure I'll be adding more pics of "French Angel" to this. I like having this blog. I feel like I HAVE to keep it updated, which means I HAVE to paint. That is what I need!! Some good ole decipline to make me paint!! This whole blogging thing is good for me! Maybe I should start one about my diving, then I would have to dive more!! There's a thought!!!:)
