I'm adding washes of colour to this piece and there's lots left to do yet. I want a third of the fish under water so have added washes of blues after I completed colouring the body. I'll lift out highlights where the body or object comes close to the water surface or where it has a strong highlight.
The background of trees and dark sky are still in progress with washes and I'm going to put little coloured fairy lights in the trees (I hope).
The lantern's glow still needs to be established as well as the light it sheds on the water and objects around it.
Its something different, but I'm enjoying the break from the rocks. The piece is about 12 x 15, 200lb paper.
