Step 13: Final Layer For Eyes And Scales, And All Fish Tails

When the eyes are dry, you can tidy them up with another layer of Ivory Black for the pupils, and Cadmium Red gouache for the ring around the bottom fish’s eye. Wait a little for this layer to dry, then use the very thick white gouache paint to dot the pupils and to add the shiniest scales to the fish’s body. Put these spotted highlights along the tails, the bodies, and fins, around the eyes, and on top of the spikes of the upper fish. These little details make all the difference in a painting like this, and they really help brighten the overall atmosphere of your artwork.
