Back in April, I finished up a this painting on canvas to include in my Featured Artist show at Art In The Valley Gallery. It is hanging there still, with several other pieces from that show for another month. It’s painted on smoothly primed canvas with a watercolor background.
I used acrylic paint for the fish. My models were some of the fish I photographed at our local pet store.
Below is the drawing of the third fish.
This shows how I use my reference photos displayed on my laptop.
Below is the finished painting. If you’d like to see Fins and Flora in person, stop by Art In The Valley Gallery where you can see this painting and lots of other terrific, creative works by other local artists.
