Finally finished it, after working on it on and off for ages. At one stage I thought I had gone a bit too far and didn’t know what to do with it, but now I think I’m happy with the result. It’s not a very large painting. It’s watercolour on Arches paper, approximately A 4 size.
Thank you to Gregory Pastollabout for the lovely poem. Here is his comment and poem.
“Hello Karin, nice title, and a fun painting. I could not help bursting into rhyme at the thought of it. Here’s my companion-piece to your sea-bottom-scape:”
There’s an art to the fart of a flatulent fish:
You let it out slowly, as soft as you wish,
But then, it makes bubbles that shout, pretty clear
That something quite fishy was going on here!
