Blue Beta fish
If you go to the aquarium, you can see fish of various colors and shapes. The colorful neon colors and unusual shapes of the fish make me think of a true artist.
The fish on the left below appears to have tattoos on its body. The fish on the right has a shiny silver color that goes well with the green plants.
It's strange that her lips are yellow, but the lower part of her belly looks like she's wearing a pretty polka dot dress.
How did they know that blue and yellow go well together?
In this way, fish are good teachers who teach a lot to painters not only by their movements but also by their colors.
I also like fish, so I raised and drew fish.
Currently raising blue betas. Started growing before the pandemic. Before I brought Betta, my Betta was a fish with a curved tail and waist. he is shy and like to hide somewhere. The name of my beta fish is Sep. Because the day I brought Beta is September.
After September 2019, we went through a pandemic together. It's been 2 years, so he tries not to move well and tries to stay still in one corner. Still, when I approach it, it beautifully blooms its fins and moves again.
When it was shut down due to the pandemic and we stayed at home, the only pet in our house, Sep, comforted us a lot. I drew this concept with watercolor paints.
Cultivating a small life, be it a fish or an animal, seems to provide infinite endorphins. They show boundless vitality and cuteness, and let humans know the stability of the mind and the preciousness of life.
