SYMPHYSODON DISCUS FISH
OIL ON BOARD 2022
With many unexpected interruptions this little fish was painted over many months. It seemed that I could pick up from where I left off each time which surprised me. It was painted with a number of layers of oil paint. Some areas of the fish were painted with a thicker application of paint to give texture for the scales. The top layers were thin and transparent as the paint was mixed with oil mediums to give the fish a translucency.
