This image made me think of the exaggeration we sometimes hear about when a guy has been fishing…. I could just imaging him actually sitting against a tree thinking about how big the fish he just lost really was and this was the thought I wanted him to have on the card. I think he’s dreaming of the size he’d like to report back when he sees his mates!
I chose to mount this on a background paper which looked masculine and distressed, and to colour the digital image with some water colour pencils.
I’ve had these pencils for many years (since I was a teenager) and can remember my next door neighbour borrowing them to try them out. He was a well respected artist within Birmingham, an ex Head Teacher and a man who I respected greatly. He did me a picture with them of a jazz band which I still gave to this day. Sadly he himself is no longer with us.
I hope you enjoy playing along with this weeks challenge.
