Above all forms of art I love drawing. Nothing pleases me more than an ink line wandering across a pure white page. No colour, just black on white. So I am happy with my drawing today.
When the topic of 'Fish' was chosen as the challenge this week for Take a Word, I left it to sit around in the back of my mind until it came up with something a little different.
'Back of mind' came back to me with the idea of a fish inside a fish for some reason. Then as I started to draw it, more and more fish kept appearing inside the one inside the one inside ........ I had to spend a little time at the end counting the number of fish in the drawing.
These are the smaller fish inside the large one - makes it a bit easier to count.
I thought I'd add a bit of colour with a background, and found an acrylic background in process in another sketchbook and took it into Photoshop. Then I superimposed my drawing onto the background which actually has quite a bit of turquoise in it as well as blue and cream.
Somehow I felt compelled to add colour, even though (in my terms) it would spoil it a little. Flat colours seemed best, so I added them in Photoshop.
How many fish? Well, I counted ten altogether.
That poor little family of purple fish is really having a bad day today!
