'Local mackerel' linocut idea

The original idea inspired by the mackerel's unique patterns. © Peter Gander
The fact that I am a big fan of fish and fishing has probably no been lost on you. And looking at a glossy fresh mackerel at Whitstable Fish Market the other day, I couldn't help noticing the fingerprint-style tiger stripes on the fish's back. With a fondness for the trompe l'oeil too, I made this particular fish undoubtedly a local one to Whitstable! This will be a hand-coloured linocut printed ready for next week's exhibition at The Horsebridge Gallery 2, Whitstable, Kent.
