090506 ‘The Trout that turned’ main drawing
Very pleased with the outcome. The sense of grievance is conveyed nicely by the trout and the surprise by the angler comes across well. Sometimes it just all gels and comes together and last night it did just that. I used the paler blue biro to ghost some lines in first to get the sizes right in transferring visually from the thumbnail sketches. Blue and black biro on the usual brown sketchbook paper. Many of the fish and fisherman sketches are done purely for the pleasure of it, i.e, not necessarily drawn as part of the sketch-to-painting process, but I will certainly come back to this one and develop it in some form or another at a later date. Any opinions out there?
