OK, so these are not sketches.  Funny how I've not posted he other things I've made in the last year, because they aren't urban sketchers format.

In any event, last month when we went to the Azores Island of Sao Miguel I brought some nice mulberry paper and water soluble ink with the intention of printing some fish.  Yes, that's a thing.  And it  has been for a long time in Japan.  It's called Gyotaku, and isn't as easy as it looks.

So there I was in a subtropical rainforest without a fish, so I printed some leafs and ferns.

When I did get a hold of a fish, it turned out to be much more difficult to get a good impression from than the leaves.

and, finally - my sorry fish
