Double Blade Muskie Freak Out acrylic painting progress

I start with a wash of watered down acrylic paint . Hue of blue at the top fading to three quarters of the canvas a orange.
 I then draw the shape of the leaping fish.

More details are painted of the fish and a double blade lure is added . Also more blue  and splash shapes are painted around the fish shape.

I add more water detail including a shape of a princecraft boat.

Splash  details are added to the fish. More accurate detail is added to the boat.  I've painted a distant shoreline in the background.

Finished detail of the completed painting.
I tried to express the dynamic action of the fish leaping and the moment in time when the water plashing forcefully
