At the outset of this image, I had a clear idea of what the composition could be. As you can see with the sketches, I envisioned a very whimsical scene that was fun, putting a fishing trawler as the central focus. I planned for impossible scenariors for the water – curving vertically, stepped and uphill. To push the fun further, I planned to use stylized fish going with the flow, so to speak. Unfortunately, I wasn't 'on board' with the clients' vision and only one of the sketches suited the story. Although I wasn't able to persue my lighthearted concepts, I am happy with the final result. It is a striking image that still toys with fantasy.
