August Animal Art Series: Freshwater Fish

In order to continue my mission to draw all the time and fill up more sketchbooks in 2016, I’ve been busy working on a new theme of drawings each week. At the end of the week, it’s nice to have lots of new drawings and a full page illustration. And I’m learning how to draw so many new things this year, which is really exciting!

I finished some fun illustrations in August for my animal art series. My theme was freshwater fish.

Don’t worry – no harm was done in the process of creating these illustrations. These fish got away!

Can’t wait to turn these sketchbook page into fun new digital art! Happy drawing!

  1. Hello Terri,

    Just catching up with your posts. Stunning artwork as usual. Could you tell me how long it takes you to do a page of drawing, do you do it all at once.

    Happy days.

    1. Thanks so much, Bev! It’s my passion so it’s great to hear compliments and feedback from others. Since I have kind of a busy schedule lately, I tend to split an illustration across a couple days. It usually takes me about one hour or less to do the pencil sketch, then one hour or less to do the first layer of background watercolor wash, and then one hour or less to do the details. So about three hours total.
