Art: Something Fishy Is Going On by Artist Doris H. David
This watercolor takes it's inspiration from a painting by Henri Matisse. I recall seeing his work many years ago and the image stayed with me since then. I tried capturing some of the feeling of his jar/bowl of goldfish and some of the greenery in my rendition. The painting measures 10" X 14" and is rendered on Kilimanjaro 140 lb. cold press paper. I enjoyed the experience of revisiting this particular work by Matisse and painting one in tribute. The stripes in the background are somewhat more purple in tone than that which you see here as digital images are sometimes a close approximation to the original, rather than a perfect representation.
