Paintings in Watercolor & Mixed Media



Acrylic collage

This is my first piece of the new year. I decided to do a few pieces similar to the Daily Painters’ group. They create a petite artwork every day, usually in the 6” x 6” format. I find it difficult to work so small and prefer the larger sizes. For this piece, I chose a sketch of a tropical fish from my sketchbook. The secret to doing smaller pieces, of course, is to simplify the design and use fewer shapes. This is also a challenge for me — being a very realistic watercolor painter, all those details entice me to paint them all! So, a simple pink tropical fish swimming amid the bubbles.
