Man catches fish, fish swallows man
Blue and black Biro sketch combining two subjects very close to my heart, drawing and fishing! Sketched on the train to work this morning. A defiantly stubborn fly fisherman keeps hold of his catch, despite the fact that he's been swallowed whole by a hungry giant carp. Will make a great painting someday when I've finished my current round of postcard paintings. Note that I initially drew the carp's adipose/soft dorsal fin, (near the tail) wrongly, but this is a sketch, so it stayed in. I also forgot his whiskers, so characteristic of the carp, but it's more a fantasy fish than representative, so accuracy is unimportant.
