The Chase (2016)

Artist: Stuart Arnett
Graphite and Staedtler Marker
Northern Pike and Yellow Perch
14.50 x 22.00 (inches)
 
This is a true mixed media piece. I call them Artistic Cartography - graphite and Staedtler marker on a nautical chart of the Rideau Lakes in Eastern Ontario. Northern Pike, sometimes nicknamed the 'Water Wolf', always venture into the shallows in the early evening to hunt for perch and other feeder fish. This is why perch tend to stay in schools so that when they try to escape and dart in different directions the predator gets confused and is not sure which one to pursue. The chase is on!
