The goldfish in my parents’ pond are one of my young son Ben’s favorite things. Their captivating movement and colour is a lot of fun to watch.

And they’re also great to paint. But you might think you need special metallic paints to paint the ‘gold’ in the goldfish.

Not so; their shine and colour can be captured with just the usual paints in your palette. And in this video I show you how:

If you get inspired to have a go painting a goldfish this weekend,  I’d love to hear about it, so please do leave me a comment below!
