Goldfish - acrylic painting by Giselle-M Goldfish - acrylic painting by Giselle-M
These two guys were fun to paint. Fish are such funny little creatures, their expressions don't really change but they seem to have their own little personalities. I find watching fish relaxing, I highly recommend a fishtank in your favorite corner where you can sit and watch.

I painted these goldfish with acrylics on a 10" x 14" canvas board.
Original for sale contact me if interested.

The reference used was from stock.xchng where you can use their stock freely. [link] A special thanks to Scott Lidell, the photographer.

my palette consisted of only:
cadmium red light
cadmium yellow medium
ultramarine blue classic
burnt umber

I do take commissions, note me or email me direct if interested giselle@studiogiselle.com

What you can do with these few colors shows a mastery of color.

It's very nicely shaded except for the fact that there aren't really any highlights. I would suggest painting some light "webbing" of light to suggest that the fish are actually under water because it honestly looks like they are just floating in midair rather than swimming. You could perhaps make the scales a little more shiny too.

Don't get me wrong though, it's still nice :)

This is my fav of all your paintings. Every now and then something about a painting grabs me, normally I can't even put a finger on it and just gives me this feeling of wonder. The subject matter and background are simple in nature and yet the use of colors just draws me to it. Like two bright lights shining in the murkyness. To me they almost make me uneasy as if they aren't as innocent as they seem. I guess because its almost like the angler fish, using their bright lights to lure in the unsuspecting in the murky dark. But then these are just goldfish so maybe I'm just crazy :)

I really enjoyed reading this comment. When I painted these guys I was in a very 'strange' place internally/mentally so when I snapped out of it later and saw the results, both my husband and I could see that I had transfered those feelings onto the canvas. It's my personal favorite of my paintings too.
