I began this painting - on a half sheet (15 x 22 inches) of Twinrocker 140# coldpress watercolor paper.
This is from a photo by Phyllis Chandler Grey in her book about AMI. If it turns out well, I'll make her a copy or maybe paint her a smaller one (easy to mail to her). As she says in her book, during courtship, the male offers a small fish to the female. If she takes it gently, they then mate. If she's too aggressive, he goes away and tries another more submissive female. This couple seems to be working out and the photo was one I really wanted to try first from the book. So...we'll see how it turns out!
