    I have not painted one. But it looks a lot like a Channel Catfish. Lots of mottling and fading. If you have to use a paint schedule I would suggest starting with one for a Channel Catfish as a guide and modify it based on reference pictures of a paddlefish as far as colors and where they go on the fish. Lots of good reference on the internet. Study the pictures and come up with a plan before you paint and it should come out fine.
