Inspiration Piece: suido bridge and surugadai
Inspiration Artist: utagawa hiroshige
i used the MB box, wire, dowels, and floral foam to build the armature for the
fish, covering it with chavant clay, and painting it with acrylic paint. the
fish's fins are from the canvas, and the fish eye is sculpey. i used the wooden
board as the backdrop and painted the scene with acrylic paints on it. i used
three pieces from the thin hardwoods as the signature cartouches, painted with
acrylic. i used the elmers glue to adhere everything. i did burn the shredded newsprint with the intent of mixing it into the black paint, but couldn't get it to a texture that i liked.
