Sergeant Major Fish

I had to stop painting my clownfish and frogspawn coral painting for a little while. I’m not 100% happy with how it looks and I think it is best to take a step back and paint something else. I’ve started a new 24″x24″ painting of sergeant major fish. I’ve never kept sergeant majors in an aquarium because they are damsels and damsels tend to be pretty aggressive. I have seen them while snorkeling and I think they are absolutely beautiful fish. Like all damsels, they are full of personality and you often see them swimming in shoals. It is fun to watch because they do not swim in a synchronized manor although they keep relatively close. While they often scene swimming close to reefs, the painting I am doing is going to be of a shoal swimming without a reef nearby. As in usual shoal form, they will be scattered here and there, darting in every direction.
