7 x 11 watercolour
This year, four other members of Arts Northeast and I worked on a Christmas challenge to provide a seasonal image that could be used as a note card or decorative pieces. A collaborative effort got it all together and with some technology the first of what I hope will be many challenges is on the Arts Northeast blog. Take a moment to visit the ANE site and see what the other artists have produced for the challenge.
'Disguise' was inspired by some wrapping paper I saw in a shop in late November. The fairly 'unChristmassy' look of the colours appealed to me and I thought a little fish could fit right in, just floating over the surface. The colour in the goldfish worked beautifully with the amber in the paper and against the teal background. I may not want to work quite that much detail in for awhile, but a masking pen is a godsend!
The original for this piece is available for purchase from my website.
