Oranda goldfish

For some reason, I really like oranda goldfish. I’m endlessly entertained by their reflective scales, their long graceful tails that look like flowing veils, and their clumsy way of swimming. This fascination is reflected in the way I paint them. They endow me with a feeling of peace and fascinate me.

This is an oil painting. Oil has been a real challenge for me because of its technical requirements and the high cost of materials. Not to mention I make a mess when I paint and oil pigments are the most obstinate when you want to wash stains away. However, there are very few things that feel like real oils. I need to go back to paiting with them.
