This week's Illustration Friday
topic was almost limitless in its possibilities, but I seem to have animals on my mind, so I immediately went there. It was tempting to just do another beetle
, but I decided I needed to branch out a bit and I kept thinking of those spots on the sides of salmon, so a salmon it was. This is Oregon, after all.
I was a little bit thrilled at how well the paisley (yes, paisley
again!) fabric worked for the fish. Here's a closeup.
Love the textures. :-)ReplyDelete
I like your paisley fish! ( I did a fish, too..but yours is much nicer..)ReplyDelete
the textures are awesome. i need to work on incorporating textures, love em so much!ReplyDelete
Your work with fabric is amazing. The colors and patterns work so well together here. Great for "spotted!"ReplyDelete
It turned out great, Terry!ReplyDelete
the fabrics really compliment the subject - such lovely bluesReplyDelete
Oh my gosh! Mother Nature really missed the boat by not making all salmon paisley--your fish wears his paisles like they were always just meant for him. Really wonderful, Terry.ReplyDelete
OOOOOOOH! Love it. Your work is so meticulous - I am jealous!ReplyDelete
wonderful at a distance and the detailed version as wellReplyDelete

Beautiful illustration. It's too bad more people don't notice the time that you spent on the exquisite patterns and textures.ReplyDelete
PS. I work out of Puyallup, a couple hours north of you.
Love the blues & the details are nice.ReplyDelete
