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!

LOL! Good one, Patsy! 🙂 I knew you weren’t ‘fishing.’ I love this! It’s so cheery and I especially love the tiny fish. Great job!
I had a question, is there an easy way to upload a video into a blog post? I’m having problems. Thanks!
Thank you, Jill. I appreciate that. As far as the video, if it is from Youtube, you just highlight the address of it that is below the video, copy it, and then paste it into your post. It should show up. I hope that helps.
Thanks…I’ll give it a try. 🙂
You’re welcome. 🙂
UGH…this is my own video from my camera and there’s not link to copy and paste…so frustrating.
You should be able to plug your camera into your computer and save the video then upload it into wordpress.
I love your painting Patsy. I hope you’ll be feeling much better very soon. 🌿🌸🌿
Thanks Michelle. I do like it also, but I am hoping I have learned a few things and that when I do one similar again it will turn out better. 🙂
