Have you ever heard of a six gill shark? It was new to us. Read more about it through the link above.
Some thoughts on this painting:
I am very pleased that I was able to keep this painting like the vision I had for it.. When I started this one I wanted to make sure and keep the trees and bushes in the background. Keeping their edges soft and not hard or sharp keeps them less in the focus of the painting. That part of the painting basically painted itself.
Also, I was pleased that I managed to do some editing in my reference photo, eliminating a house that was in the background as well as editing the shoreline adding some boulders to the shore.
I felt while painting this one I achieved some growth … and when that happens I am encouraged to start another painting.
