The above sketch is the next phase of developing the rough layout of the sky fisherman that you see below. I enjoyed working on this while sitting in our woodsy back yard over the last couple of warm summer evenings. I worked off my lap on a lapboard.
I decided to come in closer on the boat to give it more emphasis, and edit out the little dinghy. The fish, by the way, is a grouper. Next I will paint the sky and clouds. Then a lot of time will be devoted to rendering the color on the boat to make it look weathered.
