So I have a second fish in progress - a Bass I believe. I have enjoyed working with the markers. This time I experimented more with bringing different elements together, like the fish and the driftwood. So, research and reference was key to the exercise.
Another thing I do, is I work upside down for the most part. The work is on A3, so I work on a larger than A3, well lit surface. I move the page around to vary the markings and to get the direction of the markings freely moving in the right direction. This is particularly important where texture is one directional. I also work upside down for the purpose of keeping the picture fairly abstract. I have read "Working on the Right Side of the Brain", a recommended book, and in the book, working upside down is used to 'project' the creativity from the analytical 'left' side of the brain, to the creativity of the 'right' side of the brain. I highly recommend both reading this book, and working upside down...
