Gyotaku

I have place this post up actually for my own know how, I want to be able to come back and really get into this link by link.I have been reading a bit about Gyotaku style painting the last couple weeks.My sister Gayle did this style about 25 yrs ago, Our parents lived on the water and Gayle's (little boy at the time) son Eric went down the dock and caught a couple small brim fish about 4 inches, to use, and to this day, she still has the framed pictures she did,Beautiful and vibrant colors after all these years..
Gayle used this technique on bed sheets, paper towels, on and on gotta tell ya my sister is a true artist , What she can create is unreal just awesome things!!

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:Definition of Gyotaku
Gyotaku (Japanese 魚拓, from gyo "fish" + taku "rubbing") is a traditional form of Japanese fish printing, dating from the mid 1800s, a form of nature printing used by fishermen to record their catches.
The process is similar to
block printing or linocut. In order to make a gyotaku print, one places a fish on a flat surface and paints one side with sumi ink. Modern gyotaku often substitute the traditional sumi for water color, india ink or other painting material. A piece of rice paper is then carefully applied on top of the fish and then pulled off with a mirror image of the fish having been created on the substrate.
Gyotaku is also practiced as a form of art, and is very popular among young children both in
Japan and Western countries. Sometimes, rubber fish replicas are used

I remember my son's class did paint a fish and then print it on a big paper. My son did not want to do it but I wish he did.

Your Gyotaku looks wonderful Sherrie. Do you plan to do something more to it? Is it going to be a wall hanging? Looks very nice!
