Fisherman Step by Step

On a brown-colored textured paper, I sketch out the figure.
It's kind of faint but I also sketched in the fibonacci spiral as guideline
with the smallest square leading to his right eye.

Then I carefully add in the face with his peculiar expression...
Now the red shirt...I did this amazingly for 3 hrs. straight.

The generally calm aquatic sea in the background...
With the hand and fishing rod done, here is the finished painting of "Fisherman",
a semi-finalist winner of the 1st Philippine National Pastel Competition held today, Oct. 21.

Here it is with the fibonacci spiral compositional guide.
