Posts Tagged ‘Gyotaku’

My neighbor Tonya requested a painting for her son’s bathroom. Tonya loves texture, which is right up my alley so I used layers of colors, plastic wrap texture and smears of subtle  watery hues. Let me tell you about the best part of creating this large painting. Braxton, her two year old precious son helped paint the shellcracker fish, oh the memories we made!  He enjoyed painting on the fish but he wasn’t much on putting the fish down on the canvas to make a print (I saw him one time take a sample taste test). Love my lil neighbor Braxton. 

The technique of printing comes from the  Japanese age old art called gyotaku.  

I think I will title this painting ” Braxton’s First Painting”

30×30 acrylic on canvas
