Sketching underwater: artist-at-sea

What’s it like to draw under water?  Kirsten Carlson shows us in this short video. Caution – if you don’t like the sensation of putting your head under water, beware, some of this is incredibly evocative.

 

Creative Takeaway

If you need to imagine new worlds and shapes for science fiction – consider looking at natural life forms in extreme environments, and ones with which we’re not familiar in our own countries.  In this underwater film, you can catch various shapes which could be a great jumping off place for e.g. space travel designs – one fish moved past and part of its outline reminded me of the Starship Enterprise.
