Re: gonna be a brook trout in here

Thanks everyone, any ideas on a more realistic look? I just feel like something is missing... I'm going to add some hellgramites to the bottom, I made the upper plants lighter, but other than that I'm out of ideas.

Maybe some bubbles from the fish.

Re: gonna be a brook trout in here

I think what Trumper said will improve it, some darks definitelty to create more shadow. There is a lot of mid tone in it. The rocks on the bottom could be a bit sharper in clarity with darks and lights and some of the weeds are a bit "all the same". Perhaps some variation in the weed colour (even if that isn't showing in the reference). The fish looks a little like he has been frozen in time, so maybe some signal of water movement near him may help so that he doesn't look stunned. These are the things that I would change if it was my painting, so it's just my opinion. It is coming along nicely and it doesn't need much. Good luck and looking forward to seeing the finished result. Cheers and best wishes. Debs. =))

Re: gonna be a brook trout in here

I've actually called it finished after the last picture i posted. I added lighter tones. but hadn't thought of the bubbles or the movement part.
