Stephen Di CerboDescriptionCrevalle Jack, Caranx hippos, occurs worldwide in tropical and subtropical saltwater. Wonderfully colored, they are blueish-black to metallic green in the dorsal area, silvery and sometimes yellowish in the ventral area, with a dark dorsal fin and yellow anal fin. There is a prominent black opercular spot and a rounded spot on the lower rays of the pectorial fins.
Chokusetsu-ho is the direct method of Gyotaku, or Japanese fish printing. Base ink is applied to a prepared specimen and transferred to rice paper. Details and layers of subtle color washes are then added to render a dimensionally accurate of the subject. Keywordsfish, jack, Crevalle, Crevallejack, Chokusetsu-ho, GyotakuMedia
