The Aquarium

It was cold at the beach. Don’t believe me? Check out the video.

That’s ok. We went to the aquarium. I took my sketchbook.

Fish move a lot faster than I thought. At first I tried to draw them regular like. Then I realized that by the time I looked at my paper, the fish had swammed away. So I decided to go with blind contour line.

Blind contour is when you draw looking at the object but not at the paper. It’s great for really studying the object, in this case, moving fish. But it sort of looks silly. Try it sometime.

I thought maybe the jellyfish might swim slower. Silly me. Those little things are pretty quick!
