This is the second order from previous customer.
They are the proud owners of the popular restaurant www.gott.is
I am working on "steinbítur" or Atlantic Wolffish
My method just for an interest:
1. Go to the sea shore to gather rocks not to small and not too big! Might take some time.
2. Take home and was thoroughly, let dry, go over them with a sandpaper.
3. Paint with Gesso, when dry, another coat with white acrylic paint.
4. Draw up the shape of fish.
5. Start painting.
I thought I might try my acrylics as it has been quite a time since I used them last. What I will try to get out of the painting is a soft smudgy colors or rather more like abstract or expressionism. This is only feeling my way and covering the board. More later.....
I decided to switch over to oil as it is more comfortable to handle. More later.....
