Small Works

3.5 x 5 inches

I seem to be obsessed with trout.

If our artwork is a reflection of what is going on in our lives or what we spend our time doing,
what do you think I've been doing with my summer-time?

Brook Trout 

I did take a bit of artistic license with it...and Photoshop license with the one above!
The following two are of the same fish (duh) but I've done a little touch-up on the second one.

This is really my "practice" fish painting (acrylic).
As is my usual MO, I draw and paint several of whatever I am working on in my sketchbook to familiarize myself with the subject.
Then I pull out a canvas or whatever I am going to paint the "real" one on.
I will use this painting for something though...it just remains to be seen what will come of it.

The only plan that I do have is to draw/paint all of the three trout species that we have around here- Brook, Brown and the ever lovely Rainbow.
Actually, I think that the Brookie is the most beautiful one.
But the Brown does have those great orange dots on the side...

Ahhh, they are all beautiful to me.
In paint and in the river.

I hope that you all are enjoying your summer-time!
