Dolphin Proposal

I started a new painting today. It is of the sweetest proposal that I have yet heard! My nephew had a dolphin bring the proposal to his girlfriend. I saw the picture and knew I had to try to paint it. It is going to be a fairly long process, so I thought I would put up step by step as I go here. I started out with the drawing on stretched 140 lb. Arches watercolor paper. I started with one of the blues in the water and when that was done added some colors to the rocks. I used wax paper to define the shapes of the rocks. I show that process as it looks while doing it and then after. I hope you enjoy the slideshow since I figured out how to do it!
