I noted that the bigger fish appeared a lot more yellow, I took the other picture last night, I added more shadow this morning, here is an update.

Is this better now?

I like the curl in the tail Musika and the little fish. They all look good - real drama in the tiger fish Maryna, They don't look stupid - look on line at some of the koi fish in google images - there are some of feeding fish that have arranged themselves like yours.

Thank you, everybody, for your kind comments. I have now finished it and signed it and will post when I have put it in a frame. There is so much to learn here at Paintbasket.

Incidentally, when I woke up this morning I had been dreaming that I was at Dennis's house. There was a group of children there, wandering around and doing art projects. Dennis was teaching me calligraphy for a Christmas Card. I was so annoyed that I had been woken!

Hi Ray.  Love your fishes, especially the wave motion on the surface.  Wow people are starting to talk about framing their work now, so that must reflect how we feel about the quality of the work.  Good job.
