The Big Fish that got away! At 1.8 metres long, our piscine friend here would stretch even the most outlandish fisherman’s tale!
In beautiful shades of green and blue, this original artwork depicts a stylised mackerel with the instantly recognisable stripes and array of fins. Using interesting loose brushwork, the surface is luminous with mottled colour that suggests the reflective nature of the mackerel’s scales and gives a sense of movement and life.
The painting is by Peter Taylor Ward and executed in acrylics on wood panel.
As with all the panels, we carefully cut out the shape with either a jig or scoll saw depending on the size and inticacy of the piece. The painting is protected with several layers of UV resistant artists varnish and edges protected all the way round with a decorative, yet practical, metal strip. The backs are painted in a neutral, flat colour and stamped and signed by the artist.
A large scale piece that would add quirky interest to a room.
