(Continued from yesterday)
On the color wheel, yellow is the opposite of purple. Since I used dark purple for the shadows I needed to use yellow for the highlights. I did this the same way I did the shadows. I mixed 2 parts water to 1 part LIGHT YELLOW paint to create a transparent mixture. I hit the tops and left sides of everything in the path of the light. This step goes a lot quicker than the shadow step. The strongest, most built-up mixture of LIGHT YELLOW was on the pirate's nose, the top edge of the crow's nest. I put some of this mixture between the purple ripples in the water.
To make the telescope and the shark's fin seem shiny, I put a hard-edged, non-gradiating streak of unthinned LIGHT YELLOW on the upper left edges. I let all that dry over night.
