Day 17 : #30x30DirectWatercolor2018

June 17, 2018

No post today – working away at the computer. So here’s a little digital sketch of a carp. (Photoshop CS)

It’s Father’s Day here in the west. My stepfather has never been particularly into fathers day, and now that he’s into his second childhood, I was thinking the eastern tradition of Children’s Day would be more appropriate. In Japan they fly flags of carp, in reference to the heroic fable of my namesake, Momotaro.

See you tomorrow!

    Hi Marc, 2 years ago you replied to my questions regarding your powerful sketches of those suffering dementia. My mom passed away last week but I have sketch books filled with intimate moments we shared when her words no longer made sense.
    Thank you for your generosity of spirit.

      Sorry to hear about your mom. It’s great that you had the chance to connect with drawing isn’t it? A wordless activity can be best sometimes :)

    That was a great story. Sort of a Japanese male Thumbelina.

    But I don’t understand the carp. Why not a peach?
