Day 24 – My Favorite Fish

#WorldWatercolorGroup - Day 24 - My Favorite Fish - Goldfish

Today was a travel day and plans got a bit shuffled, leaving me with nearly zero time to paint and post. I’m sneaking in this lightning quick doodlewash of a goldfish just to let you know I’m still here. I don’t really have a favorite fish, so a goldfish seemed like a good choice. And I don’t have the energy for a full post as I’m about to fall asleep, but I’ll fill you all in on the details tomorrow! Nite! Nite!

    Travel days are exhausting especially if you experience delays. Hope you bounce back for a great weekend. Awesome goldfish! It’s so alive and shiney I’m waiting for it to wiggle and swim off my screen 😍

      Aww thanks, Tom! 😃💕 Yeah… I was totally exhausted and realized I hadn’t painted anything yet around 11:30pm… after my thrill of actually making something I started to fall asleep as I was typing. 😊Lol

    Hope today finds you well rested and enjoying your travels, Charlie!!

    What’s not to love about a goldfish?!? They are quite often a child’s first pet and easily replaced, out of sight of a child, when it goes belly up, 😉

    goldfish are on my list (damn, it’s a loooong list) of things to paint soon. Gorgeous, I think I’ll move fishie up a few notches on that list. Sleep well Charlie.

      Thanks, Jennifer! 😃💕 Fish are fun to paint, but I find them really challenging. You should definitely move that fishie up a notch or two! hehe

    Gorgeous goldfish – a little charmer.

    I’m in awe of what falls out of your fingers in a “lightning fast” sketch. I’m just saying.

  14. Very pretty little fish 🙂
