Northern Pike oil painting

Delilah Smith
Art by Delilah
I start the painting by sketching in the pike.
I start to paint the deep water with a mix of phthalo blue,alizarin crimson, and small dot of cad yellow.

I add more cad yellow to the mix to paint the lighter water.

I begin painting the pike. I start the under painting with dioxazine purple and white.
I add more color to the pike and paint the rocks at the bottom.
I add some more detail.
I add some high lights and more detail.
