The colors were inspired by photos of a pow wow and the liveliness of turquoise and warm colors.
It was painted on Fabrashino(sp) artistico...and a side note I think it's by far the best watercolor paper I have used...love it!!!
Anyway...I hope you enjoy this art, feel free to say anything at all I have rhino skin..anything to improve. Thanks for looking!

Hi there John. I like your fish, it's colorful and loosely painted. I find it hard to read his eye though, perhaps a deeper color might help that. Even if the photo reference has it this color, use your artistic license and use any color you wish. It has nice movement, nice job!

Great fix on the eye! Really makes him real.

I like your fish, especially the "floating" tail fin. And I like the colors you used!

I absolutely agree with Jan: you really fixed the eye.

Happy painting,
Gaby
