I could breathe underwater


The third painting in my new 'Dream Sea' series.  2" x 6" x 6" acrylic & graphite.   I chose the title because they feel like daydreams, in both appearance & process--imagined, playful and vivid.  The fish's environment is very surreal, an undulating landscape growing amidst layers of paint & pattern.  First, I sketch the fish and match it to a painted cradleboard.  The image is then transferred from my sketchbook to the painting with tracing and carbon paper.
