I apologize in advance to all the fish people out there. This painting was not so much an excersize in anatomy then it was on learning a new brush. My absolute favorite new brush. The angle shader. :) It can get into the nooks and crannies, it can produce wide strokes like my flats and fine dots like my liner but without having to switch brushes. YEAH Going to get another one that is designed for watercolor. This one is a little stiff.

Just playing around. Measuring 2.5 * 3.5 inches this watercolor offered alot of challenges. 1. Have done 3 acrylic pieces in a row and going from acrylic to watercolor is like re-teaching yourself how to paint. 2. The size- many year ago when I started to paint it was all very small sizes- as I didnt want to waste paper ;) but over the years i have learned that it is WAY easier to work washes on a large scale. Trying to get into all those tiny nooks and crannies are a big pain. See my clown painting in progress. LOL

Well as a mom of 4 kids I often get inspired by watching them at their easle's. Well today we decided to give the old fingers a go round and see what we can come up with. I actually like alot of what is going on in this piece. The movement in the back water gives the illusion of other fish or seaweed moving around - I dont think this could have been created with a brush. Not the best "painting" but definatly a good basis for another one like it.
