Sleeping with the fishes

Lovely Bill organised a weekend away to Adelaide over Easter. I didn't have to lift a finger (or do any of the driving) so I couldn't be happier. It's the first vacation I've been on since I was twelve where I didn't book everything myself!

And how better to celebrate than (mind out of the gutter, please) drawing in the hotel room!

I was so happy with the way 'Milk' turned out that I thought I'd try a similar look, but with some more detail. A bit of seaweed and a few fishies later...

The funny thing is that I didn't realise where I got the inspiration for this piece until I was putting this post together and looking through the photos I took while we were in South Australia. But it seems that fish may have been on my mind.

Wow, I love this one.. I will have to get it as an ACEO! .. I really love Milk too, I think this style of your work is my most favourite.

p.s this one is a bit bustier than the others isn't she?..maybe it's the illusion from the fishscales.

She is gorgeous, love all the extra details, the texture of the scales works really well.

Lucky you having a holiday planned for you! Hope you enjoyed every minute!

I think this is your best one yet. You should make big prints of them for etsy. I especially love the little fish peeking out on the right.. he's adorable!
