Stunning. The colors, shading, as well as the tone of the artwork all jell well together. I love how the darker fish stands out. He really makes the picture. He looks so sad though. I hope the other fish will befriend him soon. Anyway, beautiful artwork Chris.
Hi Calliope - Yes, he's sad.... for good reason: as a 'bit of an outsider', he feels rejected by the veiltails - though, as you say.... he 'hopes' they'll invite him to play soon.... Thanks :)

The intention was nver 'sweetness' here - more to show the feeling of isolation and depth of quality in relation to skittishness and superficiality;)
Posted by roaldrhody on August 05, 2010
Wonderful piece, the fish are amazing and I love the depth of the piece.
Posted by chris on August 09, 2010
Thanks for your kind comments, roaldrhody - really much appreciated :)))
Posted by juuri on July 29, 2010
I love the Asian feel of this piece... of course, I would!
Posted by chris on July 30, 2010
And so you ought! I've always held a deep fascination for east asian art - more particularly that of the Edo period, so guess that comes out in a lot of my work stylistically - and of course painting carp (or in this case goldfish) it felt so 'right' to lend them that feel :)
