The Endeavourers ‘Change’

I am late posting this morning. Couldn’t find my camera. Found camera. Took one photo and the battery gave up. Got more batteries. Camera comes on and goes off again. Found rechargeables that I charged a couple of weeks ago. Put in camera. They are flat. Is charger broken? Use tablet instead. Save photos. Can’t find them. Add to ‘creation’ new folder. Can’t find them. Go back and ‘save as’. I found them!!!!!

Too late to remove random bits of fluff from these not very good photos of my interpretation of Change/Transformation

The ocean changes according to the weather on the surface but below the surface there is greater change in its inhabitants. The scary looking deep sea fish fascinated me as a child and still do.

I had been looking at them recently and it struck me how much fish change according to the depth of the region in which they live. Of course they vary depending on the region of the ocean and the temperature but not in such an extreme way as depth.

They were all created by decolourising with bleach. It’s interesting to see how differently the blues decolour as they are made up of different dyes.

 

A little tidying up was done with a permanent blue marker and a little white inktense pencil was added to the white areas on the two deep sea fish.

Lines of zig-zag and straight stitch add a little movement to the scene, with more lines onthe upper layers to contrast against the more sluggish currents in the deeps

I particularly like the way the dyes decoloured differently adding to the texture of the fish fins
