"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

Coming together, Colour 5

The fifth colour is a light sand colour to establish the ground colour for the river bed, it also develops the final shape of the fish as it rises from the depths to the surface. From here I want to develop the pattern of pebbles on the river bed. But, I don't want to do this too much or it will overpower the fish. Rather than going overtly decorative I want to keep a naturalistic feel and correct depth; the blue ripples on the surface, the fish in mid water and the river bed below.
