Too Many Fish….

Currently along with running hares I am painting many fishes (or perhaps many fish?).  After drawing 23 fishes over again to get them right and finally start painting I then decided to give up the first painting as it was not working out and started afresh. The process with all the stripes on 23 mackerel  is a rather painstaking one, so I branched out today and did a small painting of two of them.

Painting of a pair of mackerel and an emerald and gold locket by artist Diane Young

“Leaning over the side, she could see glimmering and shimmering flashes of light. She edged closer still unblinking. Then it was too late. The locket had slipped free and all at once it was gone.” DY

This pair of mackerel have found an emerald locket, the locket is gold leaf, and is part of my “Lost Things ” series.

The locket is a present my Grandmother gave me when I was a teenager, and although I like it it is not something I would actually wear.  I  am now enjoying seeing it embodied in another form as part of my painting.
