Goldie, such an unimaginative name for a goldfish, isn't it? I wonder how many fish in the world are called that by small children. Funny, how a colour inspires a name. I'm still in fish mode, but working on this small goldfish painting. This is a challenge with the scales and colours of reflected light, that irridescence is hard to capture along with the shadow. Also, it really is being difficult to photograph and/or adjust colours to read as they should.
But not to worry, I'll conquer it eventually. I'm spending too much time on this little piece but I'm like a dog with a bone, I HAVE to do it correctly or it will bug me forever. So hopefully, this weekend, all the fish pieces will be complete.
Tomorrow I'm teaching a workshop in creativity and use of multimedia so I need to spend tonight packing up the materials I need. Its always chore, this packing and unpacking, isn't it? Paint and palettes and canvasses and paper and brushes and, and, and...but worth it in the end as the workshops are such fun. And after tomorrow I can share the full multimedia painting I showed you awhile ago as well as more that people did at the workshop.
