Nice fish! Could do with some shading and, ofcourse, a background. But it's still a work in progress, so I'm curious as to how it will turn out. Good luck.
I would have had it sketched out by now, but I'm torn between two ideas. The first, the fake coral in the background of the picture I took, would be easier but boring. On the other hand, I could make it look like the fish is flying over land. I like the second better, but my teacher is generally resistant to projects that aren't based in reality.
The assignment was to make an abstract painting. I chose a simple course of action: abstraction through simplification. Because of that, I'm not sure how much shading I'll be doing. I really want to do more shading; I really hate the lack of depth, but I have a feeling that I'll be told that it is too realistic. I really hate having to tiptoe between what my teacher will pass and what I want to do.
