I had a long piece of leftover masa paper that had been painted so I played around with the image of a capelin. I stretched the capelin out over the paper giving it the look of an entirely new species at this point I think.
Watercolour layers, a hint of gold leaf and a touch of pastel completed it. I've enjoyed creating this piece. Its an interesting exercise to figure out the different colours in fish and then go one or two steps higher in key to make it stand out more.
Even if most fish around these waters aren't this colourful, I'll keep trying to make them so. This piece is available for purchase on my Available Art page, located just under the logo.
