Week 34 Animal Art Series: Carp Jumping

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!

My theme for August is freshwater fish, so week 34 in my animal art series features carp jumping.

Saltwater Fish: Week 15 in My Animal Art Series

In order to continue my mission to draw all the time and fill up more sketchbooks in 2016, I’m working on a new weekly theme to do daily drawings, while experimenting with watercolor. At the end of each week, it’s nice to have lots of new drawings and a full page illustration.

It’s been great fun been trying to draw all sorts of animals this year, so my latest theme is Saltwater Fish. I used watercolor, and tried hard not to use my black Micron pens for any outlining or details. I’m growing to really love illustrating with my paints and tiny paintbrushes.
