Acrylic on paper
My first time painting an octopus turned out successfully! Yay! :) And I believe I did really well my first time painting clownfish and jellyfish as well. I also practiced shading in the coral before in the past, which totally pays off in this piece! :) And for the background, I did a technique called abstract pressed landscape. Basically you take the piece of paper, fold it in half...and then once you unfold it, you choose the colors you want to be in your background. For my color palette, I chose ultramarine, silver, light green, dark green, white, and light blue to represent the ocean.
I folded the paper back again..and noticed the new texture. I believe it turned out really cool! This painting was inspired from a Art with Elementary project I was working on!
I love this painting so far! One of my favorites! :) #underwaterparadise #octopus #clownfish #jellyfish #marineart #art
