Watercolor of Yellow Tang Fish
Hello everyone! I wanted to share my latest painting of some Yellow Tang fish. I am attempting to branch out into painting other sea creatures even though I still feel the most comfortable with my love for sea turtles.
This is an 11″ x 15″ watercolor on 300 lb. Fabriano watercolor paper. I wanted to do something using complimentary colors of which yellow and purple are my very favorites. I was a little disappointed with how the ocean foliage turned out, and I wish the fish looked more luminescent. Obviously, I still have a lot to learn!
I have not really practiced drawing ocean foliage that much, but I plan to. Even so, I am planning to try another one and probably in a different composition and size. This was just not planned out very well. Also, I was attempting some wet-in-wet technique with the purple foliage, but I know I overdid it.
Anyway, I still wanted to share it. And just so you know, I am constructively criticizing my own work, not “fishing” for compliments…….;-)
Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! 🙂
P. S. I have finished with the secret painting I have done, but I want to wait until I send it to my friend before I post it and that may not be until next week. I am feeling a little bit under the weather today. I plan to exercise some and try to sweat out this cold I feel I may have caught!
