I’ve featured “fish faces” here lately.  This one is composed of little strokes of paint.  The gestures of painting on the small scale of the image — these strokes, these abstract “details” —  can eventually influence a fish’s  likeness quite a bit.  This business of drawing with the paint gives me the sensation of being really near these fish as I paint.  This is like the artistic equivalent of reaching out and patting them on the head.  So far, they are the most obedient fish an artist could want.  They give me no trouble.  They practically paint themselves.
