Step one. Tape and Prime Prime Prime.
Step two. Base colour, dark blue.
Step three, colour blocks, definetly turquoise, definetly lime-ish, definetly gross brown/green... then I tried a florescent type pink/orange in the bottom left corner which looked terrible, so changed it to the color it is now.
Step four. Doodle.... I did this while watching project runway, sat on the couch. I think this is probably the best bit to do. No thought process needed.
Oh and did the hands, in calligraphy ink... so much easier to work with than paint.
Step five, bubbles, greys
Step six, waterfall, ink pens... basically more doodling, but a little more purposefully.
Step seven, add red for tree leaves.. almost fini!
Then added the whale in. See the final image below in previous post if you like.
