With this painting, I'm using two of my own photo references to make this underwater composition and switching from watercolors to colored pencils. It's an ambitious piece measuring 30.5" x 23" on 300lb hot press watercolor paper. Currently, it's in its baby ugly stage right now and will be for some time - it looks to be 25% completed. After the color has been blocked in, I'll heat up the Icarus board with a blender to burnish the colors so that no white can be seen through. Can you see the koi fish drawn in the lower right hand corner?
