Still life with fish

I went to buy a fish today for my still life. This was my second time buying fish in my entire life! I am really afraid of touching fish… This evening I stood in front of the seafood market stall and waited for assistance. I choose a bright red fish that will fit the painting well, and I kept waiting. But nobody came… finally I saw a man bravely grabbing two fishes with his bare hand and put them in his plastic bag! I asked him to help me put one red snapper in my bag. And then the staff there wanted to clean and gut the fish, I kept telling the guy it doesn’t need cleaning as I want to paint it. That turned out to be a confusing explanation 😛 Luckily I was able to keep my fish intact in the end. Stay tune for the still life with fish painting and my first fish buying hilarious encounter!
