Well hell I love it! But then I would.
Nice work, I like the solidity of the fishes and the light is just perfect.
Oils is a strange choice to me for a mural, I'd of just used acrylics and latex. Maybe I'm just cheap. Then again you can't tell a client "OK you're all set, now don't touch the wall for a month!"

Very neat. I didnt notice the clown-fish or the eel at first glance. This is extremely well done. :rendered:

I, um... actually cant find the eel. Is that part of another painting? :^^;:

gilead: thanks, i had to use oils because the base paint was oil based...plus im told oil holds up better in humid conditions? its not too thick but your right that is a definite downside.
halis/ euphony:took about a week or so, as for the eel i posted the wrong pic, this one has him in the upper left corner...thanks for catching that

I love you <3 I absolutely love sharks, and you've really done justice to one of the most feared denizens of the deep ;)

I love the colors and the light, and also how the bent light from the water is on the shark. Way to notice the fine details.
I know most people wouldn't notice it. Or at least they wouldn't add it to their paintings.
The only thing is, it looks empty. Maybe add some more coral at the bottom or add a sunken ( Don't even know if that's a real word. :) ) ship?
Maybe add some more sharks or fish?
Or maybe add some bent light on the surface of the ground, like you did with the shark?
I like what I am seeing so far, keep it up!
