Hi Christine,
Thank you for hosting and the lovely references.
I tried a couple of charcoal sketches (something I am much too impatient to do) and then "coloured in" the fish .

The pilot took 15 minutes charcoal on some kind of thin visual diary 6" X4".

The drawing of the fish took one hour and the pastel on top another hour messing around.
On another half used visual diary, some kind of thin sketching paper, first charcoal

Then various soft pastels

12" X8"

The lighthouse is on Arches 300gsm A4 (12"x8") pad with Holbein W?C pans around one hour.It's all a bit darker darker than I would have liked.
C&Cs welcome.

That pilot is good! (I don't often use charcoal cos of the mess!) - and the fish - on thin paper, no tooth, you did well.

Really like the pastel fish ..... and the lighthouse.:)

I was sure I had commented - but then again - maybe not :-) . Love the parrot fish - good work on thin paper. Lighthouse looks great too- and the charcoal pilot - good proportions.
