12" x 12"
Mixed media on panel

Incorporating two of my favorite things to paint: vintage war photographs and fish!

The strong left vertical line which cuts off the painting and the thicker line on the right hand side started me on this line trip. I guess it added some kind of visual interest which at the time I thought the painting was lacking. On this painting I used a "load the brush" technique I picked up during a class, where one color of gray and another color are loaded side by side on a single brush and then streaked across the canvas. Calculated risk taking..
