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.

Week 13 Sketchbook Page: Coral Reef

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, so last week’s theme was Coral Reef. I used gouache this time which always produces brighter colors, with a splashes of watercolor. I tried hard not to use my black Micron pens for any outlining or details, which was a good challenge in working with paint and tiny paintbrushes.

Week 11 Sketchbook Page: Octopus

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

Last week’s theme was going to be Sea Life, but this Octopus took over my sketchbook page so I just went with it. I love drawing fish and ocean life so I’m going to keep going with this theme.
