So, I've taken my first bathing suit sketch to the next level....working it out in acrylics. I like the suit but am unsure of the fish. Any thoughts on this are welcome.

I'm getting ready to start a new series of Whimsical bathing suit paintings for the spring. My first step is to prepare several sketches and ideas and then list the paintings I intend to do. Next I decide on color schemes and finally sizes. I find it easier to have a color chart in front of me when choosing colors, so, here it is. Can't wait to apply the colors to my sketches. Look for a new series of Whimsical Vintage Bathing suits this spring!

Lately I have been reworking paintings that just never quite felt right to me. It's a great feeling to be able to paint over something and give it a new life....and you learn so much along the way. Once again, I have reworked this painting from an older post. The finish is reworked in palette knife.

|Background felt cold so changed the color of both background and table. I still felt that everything was too tight, too perfect so......|
