Big Fish by karincharlotte Big Fish by karincharlotte
I finally got around to do a painting of Fancy Fish.[link] Fancy Fish is one of my most faved images. The original was only a small doodle done on cheap paper. I always wanted to do a proper painting of it. I didn't like this at first , but it is growing on me. I finished this the day before our exhibition (just in time).

It's Acrylics on canvas 100 cm x 75 cm

I'm laughing at myself right now. I thought the art looked familiar but figured you'd painted a new one like it when I saw it in my deviation piles. Lo and behold, it's one I'd already faved. I so wanted it to be a new one! :laughing:
Hugs,

Ha, ha, sometimes I will do a small painting, and if I think it might look good big, the smaller one becomes the concept painting. Something look better big, although size doesn't really translate here on DA.

Yes, I prefer the acrylic version over the pencil one. You could make more money from the piece by making prints out of it too, if you wanted. Have you showed it any art shows?

Thank you for letting me know. I always loved the original,but the acrylics one is growing on me. I have made it into a greeting card on redbubble, and the cards turned out really nice. I plan to make my best fish paintings into a calendar as well.
I did have it in one exhibition in July. I'm sure it will eventually find a home. So far I'm still enjoying it on my wall. :wave:

Hi Sue, thank you! I'm so glad you like it. Well, it was sold, but the person who was going to buy it changed her mind, so now it is available again. No matter. It looks really good in my kitchen under the skylight. I'll get to enjoy it a while longer. :hug:

Anytime. :wave: Unfortunately, i dont think so, school keeps me on my toes. Lots to do, so little time.
On monday, have an excursion to see Tim Burton Expo at cheaper price with my class, plus taking a trip down Hosier lane where all the graffiti is. =)

Oh cute :) A big coiling sea monster in this style would be awesome, too.

Thanks for your comment. I'm really not into sea monsters much, but would love to do a mermaid, and maybe a giant squid. Possibly a lovely sea horse. :D
