Watercolor: Japanese (Wakin) Goldfish
From the sketchbook, a watercolor study of a Wakin or "Japanese Goldfish." I wanted to experiment with some liquid frisket. I painted the frisket mask over the entire fish, then painted the background and added the spotting. I then removed the frisket and painted the fish. I used white acrylic ink for the characteristic Wakin fish spots.
