Pomfret on a Saucer, I

6x8" oil on canvas panel

I bought this lovely little pomfret and had to wrestle with the fish person to keep her from filleting it. When I got it into the studio I put him on this green glass plate, which is wonky in the painting, but the problem really was getting all the subtle greys and silvers, and the iridescence. I realize this is biting off a lot for a relative novice, so I tried it again with less color in Pomfret II, above.
