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.
