A Frightful fish on Sunday

My folks are visiting, the house a mess, time is short, so here's a little frightfully colourful dishy fish for Sunday Sketches. It is a coloured sketch of some design thoughts. Black pen (water proof), watercolour pencil with water  - on sketch paper -so not overly great, then I got a metalic pen, after I blow dried it with the hair drier, and traced over the black pen.
Pop over to  Sophia's Sunday Sketches   to see some super artists' work.

You shall have a fishy on a little dishy,
You shall have a fishy when the boat gets in.
You shall have a herring on a little dishy,
You shall have a herring when the boat gets in

I'm glad I'm not the only one who gets the hairdryer out for her paintings!


Pretty little fishy!
