By the time I started work on the darker colors I was listening to Janos Starker on the “boom box.” It’s hard not to make rather vigorous stokes when Janos Starker bows such vigorous strokes.
My orange fish got so orange that I forgot all about his lovely tail. It becomes reduced to just a slender cylinder.
Meanwhile, the dark fish seems to leap even more swiftly in this version. All the fish were swimming to Kodály by this time.
