Betta Bowl Original Art

Betta Bowl Original Art


A little Betta in a glass bowl. Done in black ink. Dimensions 4 3/4" x 8 3/8".



"Betta Bowl" is an intricate black ink illustration measuring 4 3/4" x 8 3/8". The artwork showcases a Betta fish swimming gracefully within a glass bowl, capturing the serene beauty and delicate nature of this vibrant fish. Created as part of the Inktober Art Challenge with the prompt "glass," this illustration emphasizes the fragility and elegance of the Betta fish’s habitat.

My inspiration for this piece lies in the simplicity and tranquility of observing aquatic life. The Betta fish, known for its vivid colors and flowing fins, is a symbol of beauty and resilience despite its delicate environment. By placing the fish within a glass bowl, I highlights the contrast between the fragility of the glass and the strength of the fish, encapsulating a moment of peaceful coexistence.

The meticulous detailing in the fish’s scales and fins creates a lifelike and textured images using black ink. The transparency of the glass bowl, rendered with careful shading and line work, adds depth and dimension to the piece, making the fish appear to float effortlessly in its confined space. This artwork invites viewers to appreciate the delicate balance of nature and the moments of calm that can be found in everyday life.
