Barracuda and Grouper Fish watercolors

A couple new fish watercolors painted this last week.

Barracuda - watercolor, 12 x 4"
Had a lot of fun painting this Barracuda. A bit "mean" looking with it's distinctive underbite, but it has a beautiful subtle pattern and spots - always so satisfying to paint. The greenish tones were a single additional layer painted at the end, which I think added a nice element of depth.

The mottled brown patterning of this grouper gave me a little more trouble. Did a bit of scrubbing and lots of layers, but pretty happy with how the texture came out in the end.

I finished this dog portrait yesterday of a white pit bull. Pit bulls are probably my favorite breed to paint. They are all eyes and ears. Handsome dogs, very expressive and full of soul!

I added a few watercolors to the dog gallery for a much needed update of some new portraits. Here's a selection of some recent paintings from the past couple months.
