Here's what I've beem working on. I just started work on the fish herself. Long way to go yet. The photo I worked off of is fuzzy, but I thought the angle of looking down on the bowl was interesting, and the pic also reminds me of oriental paintings for some reason. do I need to add more to the background or will I lose that feel?<P></P>http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/25-Apr-2003/14705-angelique.jpg

looking good and interesting view, i agree. have no advice to give on background, just finish the fish and see what else it needs.

Oh, I think this is going to be nice! You've gotten good advice already--I'll be watching:D

being a newbie/watercolor idiot I can't offer much advice, though :( sorry.

Thanks everybody! I'm going to work on her this weekend, and then hopefully by monday I'll be able to post the finish. I just wasn't sure about the background because one of my teachers wanted me to add bubbles. I thought it would break up the sort of oriental simplicity that had attracted me to the photo in the first place. But I wasn't sure if leaving it plain would work or if the ring at the bottom of the bowl would be distracting. Back to work!

Sorry the pic's so dark, but my flash decided that it was going to refuse to work. Hope you all like it!<P></P>http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/26-Apr-2003/14705-angeliquedone.jpg

walerian this looks great, it'd be cool to incorporate a tad of the fish's face reflection sort of like the photo too.
