Sailfish, fish paintings

Delilah Smith

I started todays painting on a 6x12 stretched canvas,

My palette get a little messy sometimes. I use the same limited setup on my palette each day.

I put an under painting down with phthalo blue at the bottom adding lemon yellow and white as I move to the top of the canvas. I then sketch in the sailfish with red iron oxide.

I put down some of the local color of the fish using phthalo blue and cad orange,

I add some dioxazine purple to the fine.
I work on some of the details of the fish.
