Beta Fish Watercolor

I added some background and water movement then cropped the painting to 11 1/2" x 10". This photo was taken outside, late afternoon.
14" x 10" hot press watercolor paper. I had such fun painting this little guy. I was just practicing strokes trying to learn a bit about Chinese painting. I failed miserably at the strokes so will be doing more practice. I hope that learning the minimal strokes used in Chinese painting it will teach me to minimize them in other mediums.
