Fish in the Forest

Colored Pencils, Moments of My Life, My Artworks & Process of Drawing

Spring is somewhere close – it feels in the air, in the brightness of the blue sky and in the timidness of the sunbeams.

This winter was tough for me in some way; I constantly felt weak and tired. The work on the personal projects was almost impossible; I couldn’t even predict when I’d be able to advance at any of the things that were in progress.

That’s why I hope that the coming spring months will bring more joy and freedom, especially in the physical sense. However, any option is wonderful ๐Ÿ™‚

Today I’d like to show you a series of photos. It was made in last October – needed to say that it was an incredibly warm month, t-shirts instead of jackets or coats. We with my husband took some drawings from my “Colored Pencils Fish” collection and photographed them in a forest.

Just take a look at this beauty ๐Ÿ™‚

Sterlet

Colored Pencils, My Artworks & Process of Drawing

The other day I met real sterlets – the most amazing water creatures I had ever seen, and instantly fell in love with them. ๐Ÿ™‚

These fishes have long narrow “noses” and gorgeous dark bodies ๐Ÿ™‚ย They were so adorable that I thought I should draw one.

It was a real pleasure to work on this drawing! I don’t use colored pencils much because of my devotion to the black ink and ink liners, but this technique is such a wonderful magic. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love seeing how layers of color lie down one above another and blend.

I’m sure I’ll pay moreย attention to colored pencils option the future. ๐Ÿ™‚
