HAPPY FISH

I don't think I mentioned when I posted my Valentine candies that they were many years old and in a box of "little things to paint someday." Also in the box were some little gold fish.


gouache painting about 6x6"


This little bowl seemed just the right thing to put in the same painting.

Thank you, Mary Anne. Working with Gouache is definitely different. I'm still quite unsure of how to handle them and am working slower and more deliberately than with watercolor

Great composition, love the use of patterns and a touch of sweet humor. I wish I'd thought of this composition(and had that bowl)!
