Party of Three

A few weeks ago I painted a blue whale painting all in one day. I was in the zone and everything worked according to plan so I though another "underwater" painting would be fun and simple. This jellyfish painting turned out to be the opposite. Instead of one day it took me three weeks to complete. There is definitely more details in this painting and more colours but for some reason I was constantly frustrated by it. It was difficult to make the jellyfish appear partly translucent and to make them look like they are floating. I'm not sure if I accomplished either in this painting but I tried.
 I am happy to be finished with this one and excited to move on to something different. I have not decided what my new painting will be but I have an old one to complete first so I have some time to mull it over!

Party of Three is 10" by 20" acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas. The edges are painted black so it does not need a frame.  This painting is now available in my Etsy Shop!
