a first try

I finished two paintings this week. The top one of Arctic Cod (16" x 20") I finished today. The Golden Topminnows (24" x 30") I finished on Tuesday.

Nice work! It looks like the background is made in glas with Tiffany-technique. I'm wondering if that is on purpose or is it only similar.

Hi Lona. I underpaint the basic composition in dark or intense hues, loosely outline the areas and images in "silver" (iridescent white with a little black), then do the final painting leaving the underpainting and silver outlining poking through around the edges. It does give a bit of a stained glass effect when viewed from a distance.
