Fishtank

Much to my grumpiness, I could not get this to photograph properly. The colors are indeed vibrant like this in real life, BUT the background is white, not grayish blue! Used the canned air again with my watercolors. Inspired by the very talented king of canned air (or maybe he uses an air compressor, or a straw, or something else! I don't know! Either way, his stuff is awesome!) Lawrence Yang!

Anyways, I started out just making some watercolor background for (what else?) some inchies, then went nuts with the canned air. Looks like a fishtank, right? With the colorful little pebbles? :)

have you tried adjusting the white balance setting on your camera? i always forget about it, but it does work wonders.
