I’ve realized that I need to get back to basics and start practicing things like tones and light & shadows, so today I decided to do a tonal study of seahorses. I started with grey tones only, then moved onto monochrome using blue. The third panel is a full color rendering. This pretty much took me all day to finish. Next time I will need to work on one panel at a time. But this was great practice for my skills and my patience and although it was a lot of work, I really enjoyed the process.
