Great contrasts in this Diana

Beautiful colours. I like it a lot.

Same subject, same comment, Diana: this is magnificent!

Simple subject but beautifully painted.

Thanks Thalia. It took a lot of almost neat burnt Sienna and indigo Thank you Alexandru. I love burnt sienna and indigo mix Thats kind of you Mia. Thanks for having another look. Thank you Stephen . It was a lovely mixture of very wet washes and wet on dry bits though less of the latter

Diana I can almost smell those fish. Love all the different tones for the scales.

Excellent painting, the colours are really good.

I like both media the same - too hard to choose a favourite between them! Both are perfect.

A dramatic piece with beautiful light, composition and palette.

Thank you Heather. I feel ‘at home’ with watercolour. Thank you Margaret. I could improve it with a few additional washes in places so may do that when I’m using watercolour again. Thank you Carole, I’m very pleased that I can’t smell them 😂 Thank you Paul. The darks were virtually straight from the tube with very little water Indigo, burnt sienna ,alizarin crimson Thank you Andrea. Both mediums have their own qualities ,bo,th of which are a pleasure to use. Thank you Seok. I didn’t buy the fish but photographed it at the supermarket. I think the fishmonger thought I was an inspector. Or just rather strange

Thank you Romila. That’s a great compliment
