Shark Watchers, 6x6" oil, ©Diane Mannion
Painting #10 of Leslie Saeta's 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge... third of the way there! Hooray!
This painting is close to my children's book illustrator style (as Diane Paterson), although I've always illustrated with watercolors. Really happy with this one! Fun mixing my "fine art world" with my illustration one. Have always worked hard to keep both careers separate but sometimes wonder why.
Painted background first.
