I’m addicted to painting again. I feel the urge to make something every day. Today I was not feeling well. I woke up with a migraine, and ibuprofen didn’t help. So I sat it out, protecting myself from the bright light. Later in the afternoon my head finally started to become clear again. Still some pain, but the cloud was dissolving. I decided to just make something small, with the water brush this time. Another postcard.
I’m quite happy with the bold colours of the fish. The background did not work that well, though. I started with it, as an underpainting, but I did not manage to get an even coverage. Perhaps I should have soaked the paper even more. The fish is not perfect either, but recognisable, and with some depth.
