I switched to painting fish recently as I continue to experiment with the watercolors—trying to loosen up and allow the paint to do it's thing without having to control everything ;)
I started by working with the three goldfish below. I worked from the bottom up, and you can see how my color pallet changed—the bottom fish is much more saturated than the other two.
Then just the other day I painted this betta fish—consciously trying to loosen up, though the fish itself is much more "tight" than I would have wanted originally. But I'll let you be the judge—thoughts?
