Here's a photo of a female Pumpkinseed bream pattern done several weeks ago. Females have mostly whitish gill markings and spots while the male has the brighter neon blue markings. The red gill tab mark is there, just a little too small to show up well in this picture. The variety of coloration and stripe patterns on Pumpkinseed bream is amazing. You just have to pick a reference picture and go with it. In this attempt the Yellow Ochre wash muted the Raw Sienna spots between the stripes a little too much. Maybe a little more Orange mixed in with the Raw Sienna might fix that?? Keep thinking good thoughts.
