The Marlin...

The Marlin is a 'work in progress'.
But this is a photographic step by step,
 so you can see how the layers of a painting are created...

First step is a rough sketch of the fish.

 Next:  Basic colour blocking of the background.

Here you see another layer of colour to the sea.
The sky and clouds also have layers of colour added.

More layers of colour to the sea.
And some finer details of clouds added.
BUT:
There's a whole lot still to do!
Here's the list...
Colour block and layering of colour to the Marlin.
Detail to the sea.
Wave splashes.
Add a lure and line.
Detail to the Marlin.

Watch this space for the completed painting.  :)
