Gold fish, Fish art

I started with a 6x6 stretched gallery wrapped canvas.

I tinted the canvas with a wash of phthalo blue.

I did a quick sketch in transparent red oxide.

I then start adding the darkest colors . My goal at this point is to block in the back ground because I want my fish to be able to melt back into the darkness of it.

I start adding pure color to establish the fish forms. White and Cad, Red to start. I will correct these colors later.
I add a little more lemon yellow to the top of the canvas to green up that area. I then add indigo to the bottom. I continue to develop the fish form.

I use a rich mixture of cad yellow and cad orange for highlights on the fish. I keep working on the fins of the fish.

I finish putting the last details on the painting.
