Blue-Green and Gold, Michelle Boulad (2D)

Title: Blue-Green and Gold
Name: Michelle Boulad
Country: Australia
Software: Painter

I've wanted to try out some new brushes in Painter...this is an experiment with the thick wet oil brush (for the fish and plants) and watercolour and sponges for the water surface. I found the oil brush pretty challenging to handle, and because it takes continuous pressure when blending it's extremely tiring on your hand. But I like the effect you can get with it...though it's a bit tricky in the blending (hard to figure out how/why it's picking up colours as it blends).

I kept jumping up to peer at the underside of our gold fish to see what they look like from below while I worked on this. Never paid much attention to them from that angle before this :)

About 10 hours, Painter and wacom tablet.

I always enjoy seeing painted fish, especially the golds and koi. You did this pretty well, and considering you can't get goldfish to ever sit still or pose for you it's still very observant in detail. Usually, I've had to get pics as ref to draw fish from certain angles, because the image of them moving in a preferred pose never lasts long enough in the mind.
