With over 250,000 types, and with their amazing aquatic adaptations, fishes comprise over half of all living vertebrate species. Ranging from drab to richly vibrant in color and patterns, from docile to fiercely predatory, aside from catching them for food or sport in lakes, rivers or out at deep sea, fish continue to capture the imagination in culture, literature and art.
Please enjoy these pen drawings, all of which are currently on display (and for sale) at the “UNCHAINED ARTISTS” exhibit at the Mill Valley Bank of Marin.
