The second drawing was commissioned by a fellow goldfish keeper as a memento of her fish named River who recently passed away. I really played with shadows and highlights with this one and I think the result is quite pretty. Lately I've been trying to get away from heavily outlining my drawings all the time, to make for a more realistic look. And last, but certainly not least, is a portrait of Betsy! Betsy is a fantail goldfish owned by a vet clinic nearby. When I visited with my dog about a year ago, I noticed that Betsy was living in a small bowl on the reception desk, so I helped the staff at the clinic set up a large aquarium for Betsy and her new friend Bernie. Since then they have done such an excellent job caring for their finned friends and setting an example of good fish care for their clients.
