I initially spoke about this image in a rather popular post called Teasing Composition, and that feels like a while ago now. So it really was high time that this painting got itself finished – and seeing as paintings don’t get finished on their own I needed to give it a helping hand.
And you know what!?
I am actually pretty pleased with how it has turned out. I’m rather happy with how the fish stands out on the background and how the background looks watery enough.
It’s rare that an as an artist I am pleased with how one of my own works turns out. Which is something that I touched up on in another post called Why do I/You paint? A post that really didn’t do as well as I thought it would. Which is a shame, I’d have liked some answers to that particular question.
I don’t know what I am going to do with this painting yet. I am undecided if I should try and sell it or not. It’s that sentimental feeling again, that I’ve brought something into the world from my own brain and it feels strange to sell it on. Yet, if I don’t it’ll more than likely just sit on the top floor of the house and gather dust – which seems just as unfair as selling it, if not worse.
In other news, I’ve finally joined the world of the modern and brought myself a little tabletty laptopy thing. I am still getting used to how it all works. Especially with it having Windows 10 on it after using a mac for several years. The touch screen is also taking a bit of getting used to, but the reason I brought it is being I wanted something a bit more portable that I can use for word processing. That means more writing of fictions (Fan and non) and more blog updates!
None of this can be a bad thing. I’ve been thinking about roleplaying again lately as well, I’ve had my moans about RP but I am finding that I am missing creative writing with other people. I will keep you all updated about that and what I decide. Right now I am only indulging in one storyline and that’s with my sister, so it feels more acceptable.
