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".
