If you wanna use any of my pictures, let me know.
OH GOSH YES PLEASE!! Can I use the ones on your website? Maybe you have some nice ones of shrimp and moss that I can use?
I read the title and imagined someone grinding up shrimp for oil to paint with.
WHAT THE HECK......
Looks amazing! I just finsihed 2d-art in school and....I can't paint ;_; I may take up drawing instead. You planning on making these for sale or to decorate your house, cause I think you could make some money off of this. (and don't forget if it doesn't turn out good just call it "abstract"
Take a painting class! I'm sure it will be well worth your while. Since I'm a science major, it's hard to find time for art classes, and now that I'm so immersed in school, my creative outlet has taken the back seat.
I actually suggested to my dad that I sell these guys, and he gave me the "we-are-taking-you-to-get-some-professional-psychiatric-help" look. Unless someone shows an interest in them, I'm not going to peddle my novice artwork. I suppose they will find a place on my wall. I bought a pack of 9 little canvasses. I could paint a whole series of shrimp and then arrange it above my tank.
In fact, abstract is more up my alley. This is another painting which I am working on tonight which isn't yet completed (not really aquarium related, but what the heck):
And here is the terrible mess that happens whenever I try to do realistic stuff:
I'll just stick with abstract, thanks. But that's why I want to paint shrimp; I really need to get out of my comfort zone and strengthen all areas of my art.
