04-10-2012 I completed my first big piece of art last night, it measures approximately 11" X 24" and I plan on having it accordion folded into my art journal. It's an aquarium view to celebrate my fondness of tropical fish environments the next best thing to diving in the coral reef. I've always enjoyed fish and have had the pleasure of owning them at different times throughout my life but lately I haven't has the desire for the maintenance hassle. Drawn with Sharpie fine line markers, painted with Koi watercolor paint and highlighted with Uniball gel pen. This took about 2 weeks worth of hour long sessions in the evening just kind of winding down from the day. Some nights all I did was pull it out and work on one fish or a piece of coral. No rush no hassle just slow and steady progress.
