Painted Aquascape

It's not really betta related but my mother bought a canvas for my brothers and I to paint. I am the only one who is art savvy so my side is a little more technical. My side is the only side done so far so I'll update this when my other brothers finish.
Setting up

Base color done and focal point established

Added grass in the foreground and shading to the rock

Added Anubias to the rock and finished foreground

Added detail to the Anubias and added a growing lily on bottom right

Finished painting with thumb print as a signiture


I think it turned out well. Only took 4 hours for set up till completion.

Yes my name is Charles, good memory Olympia. I wish I was a little better an painting. I probably could have been done faster.

Hard scape is rocks/driftwood. Landscape I'm assuming means the substrate.

Hehe thanks, I didn't think I'd remember it right!

Again Olympia is correct. Hardscape is rock/wood or anything that holds its shape underwater. While the land is substrate.
