Watercolor fish time lapse painting. After looking at several Matisse still life paintings with goldfish with my students I was inspired to paint fish myself! Watercolor is a great medium for fish and adding pen at the end tightens up this sketch.

My 6th grade students are starting their cacti and succulent still life artworks and we have been looking at Matisse paintings. I forgot how complex and interesting these paintings are! The goldfish are a vibrant detail that my students always notice. I was so inspired by them myself that I got out my watercolors and painted a couple fish. I love the watercolor effect with the water (duh) and the pen details at the end is a compulsion I can never talk myself out of adding.

What inspires your art?

This Matisse painting is so vibrant and complex. The gold fish make me want to paint fish all day long.
