Description

Lake Champlain Largemouth Pair 2
ORIGINAL Chokusetsu-ho Gyotaku Japanese direct fish print

size  12″  X  24″  X  1  1/2 ” deep

Champlain Largemouth Pair 2  is an original direct Gyotaku printed on “Dragon cloud” washi paper and wet mounted to patterned color background paper, which was wet mounted to a Gallery wrapped artist canvas, and protected with 2 coats of acrylic matte medium.

No framing required. Wired, and ready to hang. Hangs flush to wall.

This print was made directly from a  Largemouth Bass, Micropterus salmoides, caught in Lake Champlain in the Adirondacks region of upstate New York. It was printed on Japanese “dragon cloud” washi paper with oil based ink.
After the image was created, colored washes were added , and then the eye was painted in.

Then a hand colored  sheet of washi paper was wet mounted over a gallery wrapped artist canvas with rice paste. After that, the print was also wet mounted over the colored washi in a variation of a Chine Colle’ mounting method. Two individual coats of artist’s acrylic matte medium were then layered on to add protection and moisture resistance to the print,  producing the final piece.

The Kanji  (Japanese calligraphy) is the spelling of my artist name, Mutsugoroh, which was given to me by my Sensei, Mineo Ryuka Yamamoto when I was honored with the title of Master Gyotaku Printmaker in 2014.

The chop, or red Asian seal is a graphic representation of my artist name, Mutsugoroh.  It was carved by Mr. Teika Hiraishi of Japan.
