Alain - thanks for hosting!
Here are your images sketched directly in ink. 8.5 x 11" page, approx. 65 minutes.
I painted your fish in acrylics on 8x8" stretched linen.

EP, these are fantastic! I love your pen renderings, they're so elegant. The layout this time is so cool too, I like your using more than one frame for an image. That's so clever!
The acrylic school of tropical fish is fantastic. I love that! You got them perfect -- of course when nature actually provides a primary palette in a living animal I should've known you'd do something spectacular! But this is even better than I thought. Leaving the canvas bare was a nice touch, the bright fish show up beautifully against it and I like the gallery wrapping with the fish going all the way around too.

As usual, I love the sketches! That linen is the perfect backdrop for the colorful school.

Well.. Now you have gone and done it.. Yup.. a really nice layout of sketches, good composition. But the fish! What fun you have created! I can see them swimming from one side to the next. Great colors too.

great drawings, but I REALLY love your school of fish, when I say the photo ref, I though instantly of you and your primarys and knew it was perfect for you!
EP: I love your fun sketches, especially when you use several windows for one sketch. Fun fish painting. Make me think of a tropical fish fabric design for a furniture.
