Red Fish II

 

I have a never ending collection of prints of ocean perch, or red fish as they're often called in Newfoundland.

This one was printed onto a batiked piece of masa paper and measures 8.5 x 16".  I love the mix of colour and almost textural effect of the fish and background.  The washes of watercolour that I used over this gives a strong presence for this gem of the Atlantic.

As I need space and framing funds, you can find this guy for sale on the Original Works page of this blog.  If its a Christmas gift, let me know when you pay and I'll include a free Christmas note card!
