Big Fish

I am usually working on small sizes - rarely larger than A4. But recently I have done two acrylic paintings on canvas (50 x 50 cm and 60 x 60 cm). I did not intend to, but both ended up showing fish. Fsich3b

I painted colors more or less randomly on the canvas and then used stencils, some of them handmade (as for the seaweeds below) and also potataes for printing (eg. for the fishscales). Finally I detected the rough outline of fish and then darkened the background and made some details for the fish. The last time I did potato printing was in school and I did not like it. Now I enjoyed this way of making marks.
