Fish and Boat by RayArray Fish and Boat by RayArray
Ever heard of Cobalt Turquoise? Best color in the world, especially a tube of the Winsor Newton Acyclic stuff. Costs an arm and a leg though.

I was creating a poster for my college and I wanted to test out this new tube of paint I just bought (cobalt turquoise.) So, before I started the poster, I painted this on a piece of illustration board.

So even if you do not think that Fish and Boat by ~RayArray looks like a fantastic cover illustration for a children's book yet to be written...it still looks real nice. And it uses "cobalt turquoise", which sounds like a fun color. ( Suggested by dannie and Featured by zeruch )

Ohmygosh, how many times have I seen that deer-in-the-headlights expression on the face of one of my younger siblings? You captured it perfectly. I like the image, the story it paints is pretty fun. ^^
