There’s something so captivating about clownfish. I hate to admit, but I was the basic child that had major clownfish love post- release of Finding Nemo; the fascination in their movement and appearance has definitely stuck since. I remember nagging my parents for a nano reef tank to have a go at keeping one. Honestly after snorkelling in Zanzibar, I have come to the conclusion they are their most beautiful in their natural habitat. (However now that these fish are tank bred, I may just have to give it a shot!)
There are many species of clownfish; percula, maroon, tomato. They all swim with that kind of classic charming paddling motion which I find so captivating. This painting aims to capture their movement with the strokes made and their vibrancy with complimentary colour contrasts.
