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.
