Illustration Friday #25 "Fluid"

 The word this week is Fluid. I remember being mesmerized by the many glass bowls of live Betta Fighting Fish at carnivals when I was as a kid; beautifully colored and moving in slow fluid swishes. I also remember feeling bad for the fish living in those little globes of water.


  1. I love betta fish they are so beautiful, as are the ones you created! What medium do you use?

  2. We had these when we were kids, but my dad had them in a large tank. They were bred in Siam for their propensity to fight each other, and for splashy colors and larger fins. You can't put males in with other male bettas or they'll fight each other. Your technique shows off fluidity beautifully.
