Working on some studies for my portfolio. I'll admit technical and stylistic studies are something I just don't do enough. I think most artists could benefit from just looking at something and just drawing it. Just paint it, play with it. Just cuz. But I get so caught up in whatever my big main project is, I forget to just look at the world. Whenever I google fish, I just end up staring at them, mesmerized and forget I meant to paint them. There's something about how water affects light and color that I just find transportive, and interpreting it as an artist is such a challenge. So then I just say "meh, I'm gonna draw Steve Buscemi as a fish instead".
