Portrait Commision and Aquarium updates

I have been asked to do a portrait of a family member and said I would ‘try my best’ but so far have suprised myself. I took my time on this one and it’s going better than expected. There is so much concentration involved in portraits of people (hence why I dont usually bother, I am too impatient haha) I should really except more commisions like this. I need to belive in my painting a bit more. Here is the progress so far:

You may have noticed from previous posts that I have a slight aquarium/tropical fishkeeping addiction. I am forever trying to upgrade my stock, tank etc. and managed to grab a bargain light unit to fit my 5 foot aquarium :) I also have some new additions as well as on the verge of making my own glass sliding lid. My old canopy was made from wood and the lighting was quite poor. (My poor little plants) but now they will have plenty of light! Here are some update photos:

New huge Aquarium

So xmas came early for me this year, courtesy of my amazing boyfriend. I wanted to have one huge aquarium instead of the two smaller ones I currently have. Fish have moved from a pokey flat to a mansion haha Here are some the pictures of all my lovely people trying to install the massive 125 gallon monster! Thought we were gonna have to take the front door off to get it in lol

New fish duo

Its all about new additions this month with two new wipper snappers in Jabobs tank. For these of you who don’t know,  Jacob is my beautiful blue acara. His friends include a black ghost knife fish called Klaus, a clown loach named Binks as well as an armoured shrimp calked Marlin. The two new tankmates are Gibson the Fire mouth and Wallace the rainbow cichlid :) Hoping not too many fights break out!
