Weymouth Kayak Commission

At the beginning of January 2016 I was commissioned to do a piece of work that included an underwater split scene with a kayaking creature. The location of the painting was set at Greenhill Weymouth with the Weymouth Sea Life Tower in the background.  The style of work was inspired by the Seafood Aquarium that I had previously created for Dorchester Middle School (DMS).

As usual, the process was started by the approval of a paper concept sketch.

After initial confirmation I up scaled the sketch onto the canvas and started laying out a mask to begin airbrushing the background. Furthermore, I used liquid frisket to mask out the small technical areas.
