is the scene you are painting the same as the tutorial or are the fish in different positions?

They're in the same position, Nolan, as the tutorial and the little guy is the spotted white one.

Nolan - I decided I should try and be a big girl and see if I could capture it based on what you've taught but I'm afraid I've gone awry...I'm sorry for the blurry pic but it was the best I could do with my current lighting not to mention I obviously don't know how to work my camera!  I just wanted to give you a close up of the fish because that's where I'm having trouble.  Thank you.

Rita - thanks so much...I usually have no problem taking photos during the day but today for some reason, I just couldn't get the camera to do what I wanted it to do which probably means I pressed some setting that I don't know how to get out of...lol.  From what I see of your work?  I think you'll be doing this FAR sooner than later...you really do beautiful work.   :thankyou: again!

Thanks so much, Nina.  You are so sweet to say so.  I'm hoping for a better picture once the water is over it.  Maybe by then I'll figure out my camera!  Thanks again... :) :)

Mary!  This is a work IN PROGRESS???   :confused:

Looks to me it's already a masterpiece!   :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Lillian!  Oh my gosh...thank you with a great big  :1hug:.  Yes, I did it all in oils so still in progress but now I have to wait to put the water over it.  It's so interesting to see how much more quickly they're drying these days...first time in my life I ever thought about weather and painting...it really DOES make a difference.  You are so generous and kind with your assessment - you KNOW what mine is but I'm trying to behave!  Thank you so much again.  Can't wait to hear more about your class!  :flowers: :flowers: :flowers: :flowers: :flowers: :flowers: :flowers: :flowers: :flowers: :flowers: :flowers: :flowers:

I have finally finished this - it's been very hard to get organised to paint but finally I managed it. The replay keeps freezing on me and I have been using some very unladylike words.

Mary, your white fish is looking great. I can't see enough of the orange fish to judge but it looks like it's coming on O K too. Like you, I'm adjusting to  'weather'. I've got air conditioning on and my paint are getting sticky too fast - but we live and learn!
