Over the last few weeks I had painted without plan on a few small pieces of watercolor paper. This was the result of one - and by the time I thought to photograph it I had already decided to pull goldfish out of the background, and started with white charcoal. It gave me a good reason to spend some time browsing the web for photos of goldfish, especially "fancies." Click on images to see them larger.
This is the final result - white charcoal, more watercolor, a little black ink, some prismacolors. It's about 10 x 14. I think the dark one is my favorite.
