Fine art illustration of a Flag Rockfish (Sebastes rubrivinctus.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Flag Rockfish was completed on 12.11.2011. Since becoming familiar with these fish, I have been fascinated with them. I first saw them at the California Academy of Sciences in the Steinhart Aquarium. But since becoming SCUBA certified, I now encounter them in their natural environment. My friend and I make jokes about them being lazy, as often we see them lounging around on rocks or the seabed, and appear to have no inclination to move. The drawing is based on a photo by Ron DeCloux.
