Fish Skeleton watercolor by Amy Crook

Fish Skeleton watercolor by Amy Crook, $199

This is another of those pieces that started with an experiment with water and paint, and the result made me think of a stream in a rainstorm with drops hitting the surface and a soft play of light down in the water below. I wanted to do something more interesting that just a random fish, though, so of course I went for a fish skeleton. I took a few liberties with fish anatomy, so this isn’t really a specific fish so much as the Death of Fish, as it were.

It’s a definite contrast to the whimsy of my previous Fish Skellington, swimming along all silent and deadly, or at least dead.

Above, you can see the fine details of rib and fin and skull wending their way through the random-seeming raindrops. Below, the skeleton has swum into a frame so you can enjoy the wee size of it, perfect for a desk at work or an unused bit of wall at home.
