Have you ever wondered how to paint a fish? Artist Gaby Hunter was inspired to paint this adorable fresh-water fish by its remarkable color palette and surface patterns. Using the brilliant colors of Aqua and Turquoise, contrasted by the orange and yellow orange hues of the fish, Gaby saw a fun painting evolve before her eyes! A new painting pattern was created!


Using Artist grade pigments, Tradition's Artist's acrylics, Gaby has explained how she approached the painting of the background, the detailed patterns on the body and the illusion of the clear water and bubbles. In step by step written instructions and photographs, the student artist can paint along following gaby's guidence.


Learn how to blend the background, create the weeds waving in the water currents, the light effects and the glistening reflective quality on the body of the fish. Perhaps you will be inspired to paint several of these fish. The design is great for a bathroom, child's room, used to decorate summer home decor and even paint on refinished furniture pieces. This design has loads of potential, especially if you love color like gaby does!
