Art Journal Page J103 Fishy Business

A page I first started in October 2015 – those fish took this long to come visit! ¬† Makes me laugh what crazy stuff comes into my arty head sometimes – I mean fish art – really! ¬†The watery text reads “I might look strange to you but down here I fit right in” which seems to suit the title of “Fishy Business”.

I finished this art off in between acts in the Sweet Adelines Australian¬†Competition (that’s Barbershop singing, for those of you wondering) so a perfectly indulgent couple of days on the sofa!

For those interested in how I do it – here are some progress shots:

Neutral colours, collage papers, black and white

Added Magenta and Nickel Azo Gold liquid acrylics, pastels, shapes start to emerge. A spaceman, a small fish, an ugly black fish, a gaping mouth and a rabbit!

No point fighting it – get to work and transformed those shapes into these:
J103hs
J103gs

and finally a rabbit transformed into an eel, schools of fish and watery text added:

J103js
