New Fish Art - Wahoo

Wahoo Gyotaku - Richie Gudzan

This wahoo was not a monster by any means, but no "weehoo" either. Caught off Murrell's Inlet, SC in July 2013, I used the actual fish to make this piece ("gyotaku" technique). I started by brushing ink directly onto the actual fish, then quickly laid handmade paper on top to transfer life-size stamps of various parts of the fish. After printing I cleaned and filleted the fish (Mmmmmmm.), and after the prints were dry a few weeks later I assembled them on a wood panel and created this painting on top of the print. Lots of work, but really digging this one.
