Rays of Light - A Work in Progress

This is an underwater painting I started last year (see post on 26 October 2010) and I decided to add a school of brook trout.

I didn't like the dark rocks in the background so I lightened them up and will be turning them into three more fish.

I drew five fish going around the front of the foreground rocks and had to lift some of the dark water colour so the fish will show up. I then painted in some of the red markings on the fish.

I also added another less detailed fish into the background water to help give the illusion of depth.

I will post this painting at a later date when I have more of it completed.
