GOLDFISH PAINTINGS 2008

"Tancho Singletail Goldfish with Amazon Sword Plant"
This is one of my favorite paintings of the group. Most of the blue on the body was accidental, but sometimes those are the setbacks that allow a step forward. This was the case.
The fish body/scales originally a dull gray- meant to look "silver" took on a different look in daylight as opposed to artificial light at night (when I painted it) -so I over added the purple, and then corrected with a light blue wash overlay. I was delighted with the result.
