You are welcome! You say it took you 5; I figure I would have had 10 invested to come near the same quality.

You're welcome. And, it is understandable as you progress on a work after a long while, to begin to find it tedious.

Very carefully! ;D No, but it really helps that you can go back to erase the paint with water if you want to lighten up an area again.

This is eye-catching due to the shimmering colors and the realism of the fish. :) You are a very talented painter.
