alitta2Nice plate of fish indeed :)
They look like mackarels that are slightly grilled, but maybe it's just because of the vertical black lines on their sides :)

TeeJay87Japanese are said to have  such long lifespans due to amount of fishes they consume. It's quite possible Omega-3 acids benefit their health.

As for your painting, it's lovely as usual - those fishes on plate look like mackerels, though I can't tell if that's the species. ;)

SaltwaterYes indeed, and fish is one of the best sources of proteins.

Good guess, these fishes on the plate are mackerels;
 (even if my painting was not meant to be very realistic this time). ;-)
It was more about the composition, the use of coloured greys and the textures...

SaltwaterThanks!  :D
Fifty shades of grey! 
I tried to create an interesting composition using only what is called "coloured greys".

Jadisthat's cool. you did a good job. I'd like to do actual learning experiments like that, I hope I get my life organized enough soon that I will be able to really work on learning this sort of things.
