Spongebob’s Rainbow Jellyfish

My daughter Clara is quite upset with me. I paint all day, but my paintings aren’t for her.

Her argument is valid.

So I asked her what I should paint for her. She said “Spongebob’s Rainbow Jellyfish”. Now I’ve watched alot of episodes, but I sure don’t remember that one, so I’m thinking she is combining MLP Rainbow Dash  and Spongebob’s Jellyfish together, since she seems to be all about rainbows lately. In this case, I felt the need to redeem myself. (Remind me to limit her TV viewing)

So here is Clara’s “Spongebob’s Rainbow Jellyfish” oil on canvas. It took me about 20-30 minutes. I had thought I had it finished, then she reminded me that I was missing the pink spots. So I put in some pink spots. High impasto. It’s a fun style that I can do quickly because I’m just slapping the paint on and if the color is wrong, I just keep building it up until it’s right. Making for deeper shadows and a more “frosting” like quality.

It turned out great. I’m pretty happy with it.

For those of you living under a rock (like Patrick Star), that don’t know of Spongebob, here he is doing his favorite hobby, Jellyfishing!
