Both photos are at the same stage, I just played with the iPhoto adjustments differently.
Firstly, I would like to thank all of you who follow my blog, and who commented on the progression of this painting. I honestly don't believe I would have pushed myself to put a shadow down around the carp; nor would I have shaded its body to give it roundness and depth. It has made it a much better painting! Again, thank you all, and all criticisms are welcome.
