Here’s another shot, his fishy skin is coming along nicely! Ooh! See the Lion sketch on the canvas in the background? That’s my next piece! I might get to start that one tonight.
He makes progress only when he sticks his neck out.
Another quick shot so you can see how his fishy body is gonna look :)
Painting away…both eyes are done, just finished those big ol lips you guys love so much, too! Kisses anyone? They’re kinda girlie right now
We got a bunch done outside today, and now I’m pretty well spent! So, not painting today. I started the day with the best of intentions, but I really enjoyed playing outside with my family!
Gonna paint tomorrow. :P
Just turned the cam on, I’ll be working on his eyes, mouth, slimy whiskers and backside.
Then I’m gonna go outside and play! I’m going to play outside first I think! It’s REALLY nice out! I’ll paint later today, k? (I’ll leave the cam on.)
Here, this ought to motivate you to watch me paint. Ieeewww fishy kisses!
Well here’s the final progress shot of the day, I’ll be turning the cam off shortly and getting dinner ready. I’m HUNNNNGRY. Chinese sound good to you? Ok. What would you like? I’ll call in the order. (This is how I cook, remember?)
He’s lookin’ pretty dang cool, that squished up man of mine. LOL (I made up the boots. No I’m not even sure yet what I’m going to put behind him. Hm. Sky & River? We are dealing with the Muddy Mississippi here. Hm.)
Here’s a nice progress shot of the underpainting on his face, he came in from outside and said “Honey it’s not supposed to LOOK like me!!” heheh.
Finally starting the sketch this morning, I’ll begin painting in just a little while (on cam, even!)
Here’s Mark, trapped inside of this 5 foot catfish. What a good model, huh?
I did make it over to the fishery this morning too, where they were so kind to give me my model for the big guy I’ll start painting tomorrow. Ever seen a live catfish up close? Well if not, now you have!
