Project Description

What type of piece is this? Painting Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. I normally paint with acrylics. After watching the classes taught in oil l decided to give it a try. Used water mixable oil paints and after a few "learning experiences"was happy with the results. I did everything l could think of to give the fish a 3D appearance. How did I do?

How did you get the 3d effect? Looks great
Michael J Phillips answered:
Thanks Liz. It's all about the shadows. The fish are painted from dark to light to round out the shape and the bubbles have shadows also.
