there i was lamenting about not comparing myself with other artists and doing some painting after viewing some speed tutorials about how light moves in water. i also worked on an area i had very intense feelings about when seeing this vision the other night. i had an idea about how to make the splash area around the orb, and i think it came out really well!
i'm at the same time really happy with it as a whole, and disappointed that it doesn't look exactly the way i want it to. i'm sure, though, that when all is complete it will be a fascinating painting.
