The primary colors I used for this portray had been numerous shades of blue, purple, and yellow and a few touches of inexperienced. General I used a dry brush approach for the swooshes however there have been elements the place I moist the paper a bit after which added on the paint. That’s referred to as a water blossom or bloom impact. That approach helped make the paint strokes look pale on the ends.

So as to add visible element to the background I added in a really pale blue color.

After I completed the entire colored paint areas it was time so as to add within the tiny white bubbles.

The ultimate contact was including in some extra element to all the colorful paint. A couple of white swooshes did the trick! They showcase the sunshine hitting the colorful elements of the marble.
