The other day my little girls asked if I could sketch a butterfly for her so I got out the pad and started inking out a monarch using nothing but ink dots. Its a technique called stippling and I had only dabbled in using it in the past. It had always struck me that, although beautiful in the end, it was tedious and time consuming form of illustration. For this subject I decided it was more of a challenge so I dove in head first and started to dot up the paper like a manic telegraph operator.
Not a bad way to ease myself back into an artistic mindset especially after such a long absence.
Of course I have to ask, Does anyone have proof that Trout eat butterflies? I am sure it happens but I'd love to see any fly patterns people have used successfully.
If it worked on a butterfly, why not a trout?
Have a good week.
