As I was painting the foliage below I was grumbling on how I wished my bird was a fish. After leaving this painting for several weeks I decided...what the heck--white it out and paint a fish there instead. So I did! This is an 8x10 canvas using acrylic inks and fluid acrylics. I also used some of that coarse gel medium that looks like cottage cheese when wet, but dries all crystally.
