Dolphin Statue

This one of three dolphin statue paintings that I'm planning on doing. I've started on Painting #2, but quickly set it aside. It's been quite a bit of time since I actually did this, so I'd say I'm not going to be doing the other two for a while, but I thought I'd give you guys this one .

Because this is an all blue painting, I had to gather most of my blues to create all the different tones in the statue. Since it's a 9" x 12", it is slightly bigger than what I'm used to, so creating a smooth top layer was somewhat of a challenge. But I think it worked out in the end.
