Fish on a Plate

Fish on a Plate

Super painting - nice punchy colours and a great sheen on the fish's scales.

Thank you Thea! I much appreciate your comments. BW, Shirley.

I agree with Thea it is a bright vivid painting and love the idea you dashed out a quick painting before eating it!

i hate fish! yuck! but i love this painting Shirley, for me, this is how fish should be, painted and captured. Some fish are very beautiful :-) your have a lot of talent Shirley, :-)

Thank you Rebecca and Ros, for your very kind comments! yes, the fish was beginning to need cooking so it turned out very nice all round :-)

I like this painting a lot Shirley! The fish looks very real even with a minimalist approach. Perhaps you have spent hours and hours painting it but result looks very spontaneous , fresh and interesting. Well done!

Thank you Satu for your kind remarks! It took about 2 hours, which is about the length of time I usually spend on my pictures. I like to get it sorted out in that time if possible. Sometimes do something a few days later to them, but generally like to get them done in one sitting so to speak.

I like this one Shirley . I like the shine on the fish scales .Only trouble is im a vegetarian so I cant eat the fish .lol

Hang on Studio Wall

A quick painting just now before eating the fish.
