Hi there, how are you?
A while ago we went to the garden centre, sometimes we go not to shop for plants but to look at the flowers, take a few photos and most importantly to have tea and cake. FYI it was lovely cake hehehe.
On the way out we noticed an aquarium selling all kinds of fish. We had to nip in and have a look obviously and whilst we were there took a few photos of the fish.
Taking photos of fish is not easy due to the poor lighting and the fish swimming so I took some tiny videos on my ipod to draw from when I got home. I just play the video till I like the pose and pause it till I’m done.
Above are two goldfish swimming around painted in watercolour, I think I managed to capture the colours pretty well.
I’m still drawing in pencil, trying to keep the few skills I learned recently, you know the saying “use it or loose it”.
I’m not really a detail kind of person but I did find that by doing these pencil drawings I do observe the subjects better and that can’t be a bad thing.
Note: Yes I did buy plants, garden centres are dangerous places to visit, I just cant leave with buying some lovely plant for the garden.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by. Till next time, have fun x
