Patagonia Teams up with MLW

Okay, I can see how that title might be misleading.  Patagonia really has no affiliation with me, but I did "borrow" their fish logo after reading about their generous donation on this web page which he got from this web page which came from here.

I decided I would make a Virginia, Blue Ridge Mountain version of their trout emblem. I based the image off of the photo below.....

Thanks Family Vacationist!

Now it is time to see the evolution of the Patagonia Blue Ridge Mountain Trout Design.

The Original

I see a little trout; I want it painted black.

Rounding out the Blue Ridges.

Creating depth.

Adding some highlights.

Brighten up that cloudy morning sky.

Here comes the sun.

    Outstanding trout design--in fact all would pass the test--but the end results is perfection, I am a big fan of the Blue Ridge. Thanks for sharing

    1. Thanks Bill! I think the "sky" in the end product might be a little light, but otherwise, it was a lot of fun doing that. The Blue Ridge sure is a great place, isn't it?
