red snapper

Took a little workshop with the Maryland Plein air painters and created this little still life. I haven't attempted still life in years and had never painted a fish! What great fun. When dry I will "tweak" the ellipses and colors in the white. I was really attracted to the reflected color of the lemon in the skin of the fish.

Either that's one giant lemon or that striper ain't legal. I'm just sayin' . Great job! B)

I would like to say it's a matter of foreshortening however after consulting with my local fishmomger he said it wasn't a rock but couldn't remember what. He just liked the color. Any suggestions?
