Anatomy of a lionfish

I often get inspiration for my work from visiting the local aquariums, where I can photograph and capture textures and fish I am wanting to paint.

Here’s a great example:


I use the inspiration from the photos I take to make an initial sketch, and where I can, shade it in


Then I slowly add layers of colors


You can see the depth I start to pull in with the darker colors here


And in the end… the piece is finished !
