261 Fish in hand

I’ve done a few hands already, but this one involved water and a fish as well – two things I haven’t done before. It would be nice to hear some tips if anyone is skilled in rendering water and fish scales in watercolour – in a quick way! – I spent around an hour on this one and it’s around 28×18 cm. I’ve been looking at Red dust art and she renders water really nicely in watercolour, but i’m afraid that I’m still a little too lazy to spend hours on one painting.. I’m out for the easy solutions!
