i did this hoping that the offshore fishing crowd will snap this up at the show at New Elements in Wilmington in a few weeks.
this is how i did it.
- used magenta to draw the shapes on
- laid in all the shadow shapes very thinly with the approximate color family a little darker than the final value will be (easy to lighten as you proceed). then i thickly laid on the light family shapes.
- tweaked the values, colors and edges (softening and hardening as needed).
- signed it and stuck it in a frame for some bigtime fishermans wife to buy (hopefully) for her hubby for birthday or Christmas.
