Quick Watercolor Practice



I am not very happy with this. Kind of a hot mess. I didn't plan it out very well before I started, partially because I just really wanted to try to get his white fins to look right. I have never taken a watercolor class, so I don't really know what I am doing.





Oh, and I did this a couple of weeks ago. I actually like this one, it is of my favorite fish in the whole world! Do you know what it is? I'll give you a hint: They used to think it was extinct!

My watercolors would be stick-fish... so I think they look great.

You are right, vaygirl! It is a Coelacanth. A young one most likely. I would LOVE to go diving with them some day. They are just the most amazing fish to me. Of course I love bettas! But there is something almost magical about the Coelacanth.
