I can’t say that I know anything as fluid as fish swimming. Or anything that looks so flowing and serene. I wanted this painting to show off the creatures bright colors and free movement. It was also the first painting that I ever did on a black canvas with acrylic paint. Something that you might see becoming one of my favorite ways to paint using acrylic. I think that I have progressed since I painted this piece but it was one of my absolute favorites in the past. It reminds me of regaining that feeling of experimenting with mediums and styles. I based the placement and colors of the fish off of the taijitu symbol, also known as the yin yang symbol. It was a piece that represents balance and exchange. Something that you can see in small details like the colors of the fishes eyes. This piece was a lot of firsts and the beginning to an ever changing story.
