Fine art illustration of a Potato Grouper or Cod (Epinephelus tukula.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Potato Cod or Grouper was completed on 6.6.2014. There are times I become enamored with a family, genus or species of animal. Recently, it has been the family Serranidae – which include the groupers and sea basses. Something about these fish make them an absolute pleasure to draw. The patterning of the animal, the coloration – even when that coloration is fairly muted as is the case with the Potato Grouper. I will likely draw one more, which should be the Queensland Grouper – and then make a collage of the related fish. The drawing is based on a photo by Joe McKenna and was used with permission.
