This is an original, based on a photo shared by Viacheslav. Professionally framed (bronze), double matted, using Conte a Paris pastels and pastel pencils. The artwork is on Art Spectrum Colourfix 300gsm paper, acid free.
Experimented with the background using the side of the pastel to get hard edges on the geometric shapes. This was to create the illusion of foam of the sea with the fish emerging from it. The background has an icy, mystic, soft dreamy textured feel. The scales took lots of layering to make them glow.
