Ive been inspired to paint a couple more images lately due to a recent inquiry from a fishing busy who has interests in fish designs and art. There was quiet a bit of talk about a brook trout print. As I've given away both of my previous attempts, I had the opportunity to work on another one from scratch.
I looked at lots of photos online and ended up with inspiration from several sources. I thought I would show you some of the layers and steps to the paintings.
You start with a blank canvas and a cool beer.
I lay down some textured base colors. In this case I think I used too much yellow.
I like layering the oranges and reds over the yellow.
