Koi gestures

Every other Friday I meet two sketching companions at nearby Como Park. As the weather has cooled, we’ve moved inside to the Conservatory. I sketched some Koi gestures while gazing into the dark koi pond and hardly looking at my paper. I enjoy the energy of gesture drawings  – with live fish it’s impossible to capture much else because of the constant movement — in this case the eyes and mouths really stood out! It might be helpful to remember this movement while re-designing my minnow stencil!
