Wonderful painting. How did you get the netting affect?
Carolne, OMG! I love this one. Really I do. How big is this and are you going to put it in your Etsy shop?I love your comment. I wholeheatedly agree with you. You and I will have a fabulous time in both art and book stores.Do you know that when I was younger I never did studies. I painted directly and just let go.Now I have to do at least a sketch.
This is brilliant Caroline! I think I know how you did the netting. I never would have thought of it...clever you!
Wonderful painting Caroline, vibrant colours and a really lively feeling. Your work just gets better & better. Did you use net to print the effect? See you'll have us all guessing now!
nice texture. great work.
Thank you fish catcher for being a bat buster.xoxox

Oh, wonderful!! I looked at the close up and just love to see all your brush strokes. Love it, love it, love it!! Hugs, Silke
Wow, the colors are so intense and rich. Fantastic!
Absolutely Wonderful painting! Love the net!You sent ME an explaination of how you did the netting via email before I saw this post. So I think you meant to send it to someone else. ;-) Nice to have the heads up! Thanks.
Great colors and texture...glad you left an "out" for these beautiful finned friends!

Oh my word, I love this so much! That net is incredible. I had to show this one to my husband.
Very cool Caroline! Love the colors, and that netting effect is terrific. Nice work! Happy New Year!!!

Thank you everyone for your kind comments! As many of you are asking how the netting was done - here's the trick: take one supermarket net bag (mine held onions!), paint over with undiluted white acrylic, position over painting, cover with a clean sheet of paper and rub gently hoping it won't smudge - hey presto fishing net - reposition as necessary!
What an awesome effect...great texture!
Beautiful piece! Love your use of color and the netting is really cool.
heehee you are so cute :D i love this, course, i am a fishy or 2 ;)
Prize catch :)
Your palette inspires! Lovely work Caroline!
This is gorgeous Caroline. The colours are really lovely but like you I hope they escape...haha. Very impressed with the linocut too. I have decapitated quite a few things when I have been linocutting. Clever you to find something so lovely to cover the deed.
Lovely composition and colours!Great idea too:)May I have one fish for lunch?
Goodmorning darling friend. You are up. It is 3 a.m. here and I want to sleep. Love you.Renee xoxo
...they will escape! Being a Pisces, I love all things "fish!" Such a beautiful, colorful, creative piece. I love it...
