The Fish Pond

I like to experiment with different subject matter. I have never tried to paint fish before so this is my first attempt. The coi fish is a really colorful and interesting to paint.
This piece is small-4 1/2 x 6 on Strathmore watercolor paper with Prang watercolor paints.
I like to use watercolor paints in pans because it is more convinient, especially for busy moms. And this brand is of a pretty good quality.

The Pair

This is a little piece with pastel on Strathmore paper.The image is 5 by 7.I decided it would be better to concentrate on small simple paintings till I get more familiar with the media.
Pears are my favourite kind of fruit and I also like to paint them because of their shape and color.I hope they look juicy and delicious to you too.
Actually I did this painting two weeks ago. I am kind of out of ideas and inspiration at the moment. Maybe because I fought a lingering cold for the last two weeks and on top of that I caught a pink eye from my daughter which was not fun either.
