Here are some of my fish inspired paintings (and a print) from a few years back.

My professors did not have aquariums and thought it was slightly more creepy than intended.)

I'd love to see more people's art!
Wow they are great! I love the second one!

I just started up using water color paints after a long hiatus. The first picture, the betta, only took me about half an hour. I was just playing around with my water-color pencils.

The second picture I used actual water color and it took me probably 20 hours or so by the time I sketched it out, used the masking fluid, and then did the various layers. I'm still not quite done with it... I need to add some texture to the rocks in the background, add darker tones, and I need to rework the fish tails. But here we are...

By the way, squidsquiggle, I absolutely love those pics! Particularly the sea horses and the reflection one.

Fish deserve time, effort and lots of care!!! Please don't impulse buy!

Those are both great Talvari, I particularly like the bottom one. I have never used the watercolor pencils before. How do you like them?
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, but thankfully they both led to fish stores.

Thanks everyone for the kind comments! Those are very nice, Talvari. I love all the little delicate speckles on the bottom fish.
