The Colourful Fish, finished!

Well, I've finished, just in time for half term! I found this so interesting to paint, plenty of variety to stop me getting bored. The children are from my son's class, this was their class assembly. I didn't include Spencer as he looked a bit grumpy, I think he had stage fright! I'm going to email the children's mums to get a verdict on the final piece....

This is taking forever! I was hoping to be finished today. I tackled the sequins and glittery fabrics today, they took so long.....I'm going to have to say this is mixed media, as I've now had a go at it with pastels too.

Day 4, Small but important...

This may not look much different, but I'm pleased, I have all 4 likenesses, you can click on the picture to enlarge. Now I can get going with all the rest, hopefully it should come together now quite quickly. Only thing I'm uncertain of is the bottom LH corner, I think I may put more weedy crepe paper like the background. Ready to tackle some sparkles now. I've been reading that to achieve brightness of light you use complimentary colours rather than pure white. I'm going to try this in the blue sequined fabric, by adding yellows and oranges to capture the sparkles.
