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 !
