Recommended by Rebecca (Gallery Manager):
"I have always appreciated how Hiroshima can capture the personalities and unique characters of his animals. In this piece, the bright eyes and open mouth of the fish make it seem alive and alert. The artist is also excellent with the color mezzotint technique. Here the dark blues and reds of the water tells the viewer that the fish is swimming deep in the river. The color gradients in the water and the fish's belly are incredibly smooth and natural."
