Three Fish- SOLD

I did a very quick sketch of the fish and toned the back ground with yellow ochre.

This is a RayMar canvas panel that is 8x10. I almost always use RayMar panels for my daily paintings and all of my small work because of the high quality of the panels and the ease of storage.
I have started to add dark colors to the painting.

Now I start to add some of the local color

Adding more of the local color. When I paint fish I paint from my imagination so it takes me a while to get feel for just how I want the painting to flow.

Now I start to add some of the background color. I have decided that I just want color for the background no images such as rocks or weeds.

With some of the background in I start adjusting the color of the fish.

It's starting to look more like what I want but it still needs more detail.

I want the fish to have a little bit of an abstract quality to them.
