I drew this fish in a class at the Art Lounge in Huntington Beach, CA. If you live in the area, definitely check it out. It is a wonderful place to play. http://www.theartloungeoc.com/
Marah Johnson, the instructor, had a simple fish drawing and encouraged us to doodle and paint it to make it personal. Two tips made this project flow for me: 1) we drew the fish on another piece of paper, cut it out, and pasted it onto the background when we were satisfied with it. 2) We started the doodles in pencil, so we could futz with it before making it permanent. These two things freed me from the "don't wreck it" syndrome that makes it hard to work in a journal.
Thanks for looking!
