A Fish Picture…

February 11, 2015

I had been practicing drawing working with an image from an Etruscan vase of a female dancer without much luck last week… the drawings worked but they were not worthy of posting. Then a series of rain storms came through the Bay Area and I was stuck indoors for a while. This picture of a jewel-tone fish came into my mind and I started to draw. I have not colored it yet because it has an interesting “woodcut” quality which I am going to share before attacking it with color.

During recent rainstorm this fish came into view in full color, but I wanted to capture it while in black and white. Drawn by Meredith Eliassen
