Flash Dancers by Linda Young

Cleaning up my studio, I found the "start" of a watercolor that was to be a painting five years ago.  I, however, gave up on it and it wasn't until the clean up today I evaluated it:  I had put an over-abundance of very bright colors in that underpainting. 
Because of the flashes of color that pond fish make in the bright sunlight, I kept most of them and attempted to paint the negative shapes.  Here's my submission for this month's Daily Painter's of Pa challenge that I call "Flash Dancers".

January 2012 Challenge
"Paint away the Winter Blues"
Hosted by Linda Young


Welcome to the new Daily Painters of Pennsylvania Challenge Blog for January!

With the Winter's chill in the air, I look forward to the ice melting on the goldfish pond; anticipate the greening of leaves and the return of Spring.  Ah! the warmth of Springtime is on my mind!  Here's the fish in my backyard pond right after they were fed. There's a little feeding frenzy going on and there's a lot of movement to the water in this challenge; I hope it fills you with a little inspiration of the Spring that is on the way.
