A bold and vivid Oil Painting depicting the magical John Dory fish in all of its colourful magic. Set against a luxurious deep oceanic blue and professionally framed in a contemporary floating white wooden frame.

The total size of this framed piece is 22"(56 cm) wide x 17.5"(45 cm) tall, depth is 1.5".

This unique original painting really catches the eye, shortlisted and displayed in the 2022 Southwest Academy exhibition, it typifies my bold, detailed and simplistic style, encapsulating the subject's beauty through the use of rich oils contrasted by an opulent deep-ocean blue.

The John Dory is found on the coasts of Africa, Southeast Asia, New Zealand, Australia, Japan and Europe. They live near the seabed and are normally solitary. The origin of their name remains somewhat of a mystery; some suggest that "John" derives from the French jaune, (yellow).  Other known names for the John Dory are the "St. Pierre", or "Peter's Fish", a related legend says that the dark spot on the fish's flank is St. Peter's thumbprint!

This piece is framed and ready to hang. It will be prepared for dispatch by hand and shipped in protective, sustainable packaging.

Please note: Colours sometimes vary from screen to screen and on the electronic devices that you view them from. The artwork is photographed in different lights to provide as much accuracy as possible.
