Spotted Eagle Rays - A Work in Progress

Now that the rays have been transferred (see postings on 24 Jul 2012, 17 Aug 2012 and 22 Dec 2012) onto the canvas I wanted to get them painted.

I brushed in a mixture of ultramarine blue, burnt sienna and a touch of alizarin crimson to create a warm dark for the back of the rays.

Then with a mixture of white and cerulean blue I painted in the underside of the wings and the bellies of the rays.

I will post this painting at a later date once it is completed.
