Here is my first Friday Paint Party painting. It is an 18×24″ watercolor and colored pencil affectionately nicknamed “Nemo.”
I’ve been working on this piece for a few weeks and I’m stuck. I thought I was done except for painting another small clown fish in the white space above the coral.
I like my anemone and fish by themselves:
and I like to coral on the right side by itself, but as a whole, I’m not fond of the composition. I don’t like the space to the left of the anemone and I think I need some darker and perhaps more defined seaweed behind the anemone, but I’m not sure.
So, should I
- leave it as is (once I put in the other fish)?
- crop it into two pieces and make it into a group?
- leave it big, but paint some more?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated as my art lessons are on “summer break” as of Monday.
