Start with a poorly drawn circle. Add a little shape here and then a little shape there and a fish appears. Grid the surface of the fish shape and then redraw it onto a larger surface.  This project was created the same way as the Lion project.  Instead of using warm and cool colors to complete the project this assignment used complementary colors.  These are colors that sit across the color wheel from each other (Red/Green, yellow/purple, orange/blue)   The fish is the positive space and the area outside the main figure is the negative space,
