P69 – Fish On A Plate

There was a lot of suggestions in the instructions that implied I might like to spend some time with the fish, studying them and making choices. This was not the case! As soon as the drawing was finished, the horrible, smelly things were chopped up and flushed down the toilet. Not the most pleasant of exercises! (I did enjoy drawing the pyrex dish, though.)

What were the main challenges of drawing animals? They move! They are quite happy to stand still until they know you are half way through your drawing before wandering away. My ‘farm’ drawings which I have uploaded are the  completed ones. A number of others varied from just a line to three-quarter finished pieces. Sleeping and stuffed animals are easier!

Which media did you enjoy using most (Fine liner pen, surprise surprise!) and which did you feel were best for the subject matter (Fine liner pen) and why? (I like using my fine liner pen!)

Have you tried drawing a moving animal yet? No.
