something fishy

greetings all,

 

I don`t know what you did this afternoon but I did this little "sketch" of a fish. The image is twice actual size and the plate is copper. The design is based loosely on a watercolour and is rendered using chisels as my "brushes. I`ve used texture and a little gilding and silvering to add interest. the eye is shakudo although the colour appears washed out somewhat, where`s my magic marker ;)

 

as always, Ford

Hi Jim & Dick,

 

The actual panel is about 110mm long.

The silvering and gilding is simply electroplating, some before texturing and chiselling, some after. The kind of thing the Taisho period artists got up to as they began to explore the use of this "new" imported technology. I`ve simply extended the textural vocabulary, something I`ve been secretly working on for some time now, :DB)

I might simply mount it on a plain backing of pale wood, if at all. It may simply end up in the "sample" drawer. B)

 

regards, Ford
