View Full Version : my fish need your help

I'm working on a piece with 3 koi and a turtle. The turtle is swimming on top of the water. I'm having a hard time making the fish look Luke they are under the water. I guess I'm going to start adding a green glaze to rhe fish, but I don't want to mute the colors too much. Any ideas?

add a few light lines of surface water like white/pale blue..
try to do a search on other koi paintings and see how others have done theirs.
Good luck, a few more posts and you can upload a photo.

It's impossible to judge how to help without seeing your painting - so make another couple of posts in the forum here and then you can add your painting.

Just comment on a couple of others' paintings - you'll soon be one of the acrylics 'family' - welcome!:)
