Happy Plump Goldfish

This little goldfish has the freedom to swim as much as it wants. As long as it gets some food each day, it will swim happily for the enjoyment of its owners in a fancy, clean aquarium. Ink and watercolor.

Sea Floor

This underwater scene was done using any color I wanted to use. There was no plan to this painting other than lightly sketching out some of the images then going from light to dark as I continued to complete the image. The fish are made up, the long strands of plant growth are made up and the sea floor is also from my imagination. It is fun to paint this way at times--no structure, no thinking but just enjoying. Ink and watercolor. SOLD

Fish At Home

Fish swim freely in their colorful underwater kingdom where they have only a few predators to fear. When waters are clear, a myriad of plants, rocks and crustaceans can be seen living on the sea floor environment. My fish are no particular species--I just made them colorful. Ink and watercolor.

Colored Fish

During the holidays, I did some playing with underwater scenes. I did two or three under-the-water paintings where I used maskoid then added layers of washes. The fish who are swimming appear to have something in sight. These were drawn and painted with no real fish in mind--it's easier that way. There are times when I play only--this was one of those times. Enjoy my colorful, experimental creation. Ink and watercolor.

A Fisherman's Paradise

A fisherman's dream would be to have an isolated lake all to himself where he can cast and fish to his heart's content. People do this only when they are not in a hurry. This painting was done as a gift for my brother-in-law Gary Williams in Escondido, California. Laurie, his wife, commissioned me to do it secretly and the painting was presented this past August. We think he was surprised but maybe he knew we were doing it all along. Ink and watercolor.

Goldfish Wants Food

Beneath The Surface

This large fish is a version of some kind of colorful trout searching for food in a cold stream up in the mountains. If you can make your lure twirl properly you might bag one of these beauties. My fishermen friends would like to snag one of these. I wish they would so they could bring one or two home to share with me. I love to eat fish but I do not care to catch them. I would rather sketch while they fish. Ink and watercolor.

Focused Fish

These fish are focused on something ahead of them and look like they know exactly where they are going. I do not know the type of fish they are but they are colorful. Fish look like they are hypnotized but seem to always be content in their lives. Ink and watercolor.

Feo And Funky

Extremely ugly (Feo in Spanish) and very funky (Whacky in English) explains this fishes dilemma. This multi-colored sole was done while I was idly doodling. I might add, this fish looks very sad also.

The intricate details on the fish make him unique to most others in the ocean. Please like him because he really needs it. I used Micron, Nexus pens and watercolor and brush pens to complete this art.

Tiger Grouper

This is a lurking Tiger Grouper. It swims in shipwrecks, reef shadows and ledges. With a powerful sucking action from opening its large mouth, this fish swallows prey whole after holding them in its rasp-like teeth. It is well camouflaged and grows to approximately two feet in length. Ink and watercolor, Strathmore, 16" x 20".SOLD
