Hi everyone. Today I have a short post with another page for Chris' Hold the Line Challenge at Art Journal Journey
And today my LINE is a fishing line.
Today's page is a slightly mixed media painting by me. I started by spraying the background with dark blue ink. Then on a separate sheet of paper, I create the boat and fussy cut it out. I painted the water with a couple of shades of blue acrylic paint as well as a blue Stabilo pencil. The 3 fish in the water are gold paper fish, but those jumping out are ones I painted and drew in details. I also drew, painted and put in the details on the man, as well as his fishing pole. I wish he didn't look quite as stiff or folk-art like, but I don't dislike him.
Finally after painting in the clouds, I stamped and added the little quote.
I call this Fisherman's Dream because those fish jumping out of the water look like want to jump right right into his boat. They might be little fish compared to the ones in the water though, and I know he wants to catch a BIG fish!
That's all for me today. Thanks for visiting.
