A couple new fish watercolors painted this last week.
Barracuda – watercolor, 12 x 4"
Had a lot of fun painting this Barracuda. A bit "mean" looking with it's distinctive underbite, but it has a beautiful subtle pattern and spots – always so satisfying to paint. The greenish tones were a single additional layer painted at the end, which I think added a nice element of depth.
Grouper – watercolor 13 x 7"
The mottled brown patterning of this grouper gave me a little more trouble. Did a bit of scrubbing and lots of layers, but pretty happy with how the texture came out in the end.
