This fun and creative painting is filled with whimsical details. Created in my imagination, these colorful fish enjoy the serenity of life under the sea while they care for their pet humans...
The original painting is gouache and watercolor on Arches hot-pressed 140 lb. smooth watercolor paper. Gouache is a more opaque paint than watercolor and allows for richer, more vibrant colors, which is well-suited to this animated and fun design.
This painting is one in a series of 3 and will be sold for a limited period of time.

Hendrika M, usa Member Since January 2008 Artist Statement Although I have always been an artist, my passion for my map work stems from the love for my children who are adopted from Asia, and my desire to provide them with with a beautiful representation of a map of their birth country. From there my project has grown as I continue to draw maps of all of China's provinces and other countries for other families to share with their children as well and provide them with a visual connection to their homeland. I'm now adding even more countries to my list and will be adding designs as I complete them.
Each of my maps begins with a hand-rendering in ink, followed by digital editing and finishing touches that make it both a unique and beautiful work of art. Each original map takes me well over 100 hours to create!
Personalization can be incorporated right into your map by contacting me prior to purchase; learn more at: www.Redthreadmaps.com. I truly love my work, and hope you enjoy my designs as well. Thank you so much for visiting!
*PLEASE NOTE - I will be reopening my shop with all new maps and designs in July, 2020 - Thank you for your patience!*
