Artist's Description

A while ago, I decided I would have some fun with my new watercolour pencils. I drew and I drew, and eventually this was the result. Some areas I wetted after I drew it, and lastly added cross hatching with a ink liner pen. I was even inspired to write a poem.

I’ve Invented a Fish ( by karincharlotte )

I’ve invented a fish
He’s a colourful fellow
With pretty bright colours
Red, blue, green and yellow…

He began as a doodle
Inside my sketch book
But the longer I drew
The better he looked

I used all my blues
And most of my reds
Three or four different yellows
I have no regrets.

My watercolour pencils
are fun to explore.
I blended and shaded
with colours galore.

I shaded and mixed
My blues with my greens
Then added some water,
to make aquamarine.

Blues and reds gave me purple
Not just one kind, but six
Reds and pinks over yellow
make an interesting mix.

Then I painted a rainbow
So outrageous and bold
The more colour, the better;
I’ll even add gold

My fish has spiked fins
He has gills, but no scales
He has razor sharp teeth
and a fanciful tail.

He swims through the water
always searching for prey.
He eats smaller fish;
ten dozen per day.

He has to be watchful
To avoid the big fishes
Because he’s so fancy
He looks quite delicious.

So here is my fish tale
I hope you’ll agree
My fish is a beauty!
It’s plain to see!

Perhaps for my next
Invention I’ll make,
A colourful bird,
or a bug, or a snake.

Why don’t you invent
A fish just like me
You could do more than one,
maybe twenty and three.
