Fine art illustration of a Black Grouper (Mycteroperca bonaci.)
The Black Grouper was completed on 12.13.2014. The large fish of the ocean have always held a great fascination with them. I recall sitting on the pier in Santa Barbara as a kid hoping to catch a glimpse of some massive leviathan lurking below the surface. This is the sixth grouper I’ve drawn and it will be part of two collages I’m designing: one of the marine life of the Caribbean, the other a collection of some of the world’s grouper species. The drawing is based on a photo by Mark Harris and was used with his permission.
