Mackerels for Lunch – Completed

with 3 comments

Finally, I tackled and completed painting the Mackerels for Lunch. I think the graphite underdrawing has helped me in the final finish to a certain extent. I reserve my decision if I will try this technique again. I am still undecided. Here the mackerels are placed in a clay pot. The mackerels are descaled, gutted, cleaned and cut into steak-like pieces. The clay pot is also used to cook the fish. These earthenware dishes are fragile and must be handled with care since they are easily broken. We can make the yummiest fish curries in a well-seasoned clay pot.
