This is an,unframed, original pen and ink painting on 325gsm bockingford watercolour paper. The deep sea Anglerfish is rarely seen as they live in the very depths of our oceans, where no light penetrates. These scary looking fish are armed with a luminous 'rod' to attract their prey. They have several smaller lumionous markings on their bodies which pulse, creating beautiful light shows. My inspiration for paiting this 'ugly fish' is to draw attention to the amazing creatures within our Sea's, to raise awareness of the vast array of wildlife we do not see or may not even have been discovered yet. This fish may not be pretty but how incredible is nature, to have equipped these fish with lights to ensure they are able to capture their food, just stunning.
