I remind myself that I made this drawing expressly to be crude, by which I do not mean to insinuate anything about my beloved koi, rather I mean that my motive for drawing was to get at something very sketchy — only to do it in a larger scale — to give myself the same freedom I would own when working small.

I need to remind myself as I go, for the sake of each of those times when I step back, experience surprise and silently tell myself, “oh, that’s a bit abrupt.” 

Well that was the whole idea.
