Observational drawing is so fun esp when i make it retarded.
I’ve been wanting to do something with sardines along the lines of being pressed together, but moving away from food in glass containers.
Ideas often begin life as doodles in note books and I come back to them at a later date.
Sometimes I stage photos of my subjects especially if they quickly perish or are to become dinner. After photographing the sardines I did a few quick sketches to help understand their form and the composition. I normally eat tinned sardines on toast, but these were delicious baked.
The fish have delicate skin that shimmers with blues & oranges. Not sure how I’m going to describe their texture but that’s half the fun.
Time to draw a Peacock feather before school.
