I would like to paint fish in an underwater scene. Especially like free flowing fins of some fish. I know we have Koi tutorials. Is there any chance of underwater scenes coming to us? thank you. (going nuts here trying to look through all the threads, therefore the question)   Carol

Great suggestion, Carol;

I have 3 large canvas that I have been saving for just what you are suggesting.  I'd like
to make it a triptych (3 part painting) of a underwater scene with coral, seaweed,
fish, and crabs, etc.   I want to do a few practice classes with the experts here at PB before
I take the quantum leap and do the three painting on my own.


I did take Dennis', watercolour class of a sea turtle and then I tried my hand at the
same subject with Water Soluble Oils but, I don't feel ready to tackle a big painting
on my own. Definitely not a 3 part masterpiece!!!!!   

I hope one of our instructors will possibly give a 3 or 4 part course on the subject, as
I am sure many others would be interested too.  Here's crossing my fingers and toes!!!!
