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.
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.
