He's kind of smitten with the ocean lately,
especially the big guys, the scary guys,
and the whales.
I love discovering new beauties in the creative process.
Coloring is something I'm both awed and fascinated by,
so I decided this would be a great opportunity
to experiment with how I color my sketches.
I sketched in buttery soft oil pencils,
and layered colored pencils on top.
No paint this time.
and played with laying in textures with Photoshop.
Now I get to take my sketches
and turn them into the party -
fishy "paper dolls,"
sharks on a stick, perhaps.
More to come...
