glub glub...

I worked in a fish physiology lab during my fourth year in university. And well, the fish motif has definitely stuck with me since. Let's just say, I was known as the "fish butcher", "fish monger", "fish killer", and well, you get the idea (sorry for those who are squeamish, 'twas for the sake of science, I swear!) So this series of paintings is dedicated to all the yellow perch that "participated" in my experiments.

As a poor art student, I decided to save money and reuse watercolour paper. I tore up this watercolour painting I didn't particularly like (wet-in-wet ground scribbled on with ink) into little pieces as practice paper. I ended up incorporating the original painting afterall. :)

Water-soluble crayons, water-soluble graphite, gouache, watercolour & black acrylic ink on paper, 5.75x7.5 in. each
