Kids say plz,I deliver : working on fishes

Postby KarinPavlic » Sun Jan 27, 2008 4:20 am

Well, it all starts like this:
"Mumy, please paint fishies for our room," says the jungest one.
"Do fishies, mumy," the other 2 boys join to the request.

Could never say no to a painting if my boys ask me so nicely. :lol:

So, I never ever sketched, draw or painted fish, so I find this rather challenging.

Oh, and if anybody thinks that I'm posting 2 much in this corner of the forum then please say so.

Medium: oil
Size: 40x40 cm
Colors used for underpainting: prussian blue, primary cadmium yellow and titanium white

I hope no one else thiks you post to much here, I really enjoy seeing your process. I painted a room full of fishes one time for my daughters, nothing as detailed as what you are doing (andthey were painted right onto the wall) but they still loved it. I wish I had teken pictures I did about 3 or 4 different rooms for them, it is hard to resist when they ask. :lol:

Don't ever stop posting here. I wish more artists would post their works in the "works in progress" section. I love seeing your work from start to finish. It's very interesting.

all the best,
Joe

Thanks saphyre and Joe. :)
Then I shall not stop doing it. ;)
I wish they would also becose it's by-itself interesting to see how the painting/sculpture/digital transforming/drawing/etc transforms. And on second note I believe that it can also be a good learning experiance for us who are self-thought.

I painted on the walls 2 times now, using the tempara colors. Once was when I was 15 and I still am sorry that my grandad ruind it all (scratched it from walls) out of boredom before I could at least take the shoots of it.
The second time was for my boys when they were babies. Done blue clouds and some Peter Pan beings.
Now that we moved I plan to do it again (already painted bedroom and kitchen windows and doors -if anybody wants to see it, let me know) but I cant decide wich 'medium' to use.

Anyhow, done some detailing and I will do more when colors dry just a bit, so about hour from now.

Colors used in this part: titanium white, prussian blue and dioxazine purple

These fish are awesome, looks like a capture right from an aquarium. :D I love fishes, ever think about doing some of the ocean fish? They are really colorful, do one of the picasso trigger fish. :lol:
