USES PERISCOPE IN SKETCHING FISH (Aug, 1930)

USES PERISCOPE IN SKETCHING FISH

The haunts of the marine underworld are an open book to Dorothy Beck, an amateur artist from Liver-more, California, who is sketching as many scenes of sea life as possible during her round-the-world trip. She has merely to place her big wooden periscope in the water in order to bring before her eyes a moving picture of activities of marine life. Her intention is to have upon her return to the United States a unique collection of pictures, showing the life of exotic fish that make their home in strange corners of the globe.

The picture shows Miss Beck, with her native guide and assistant, sketching the fish found in the tide waters along the shores of the island of Ceylon. She is making her sketches as nearly accurate as possible for the purpose of adding to their scientific, rather than their artistic, value.
