Pencil Drawing – Beta Fish

5 Aug

Beta Fish - Graphite Pencil on Velum

This is a drawing of a beta fish I did in my second drawing class. The class was all about the three-dimensional aspect of drawing objects.  The skill of taking an object, and drawing it from the bottom up, breaking it down into smaller parts, perfecting those parts and then re-tracing until it’s just right.   I liked my fish, the teacher did not.  I like the flow and movement of the fish.  My pencil lines are strong, and I like the shape of the fish.  I have always had an affinity for Beta Fish, and have had many in my years.
