trout 7x5

This is the first time I've painted a fish (I did paint a can of sardines a couple of years ago but I'm not counting that). My mom gave me this trout a couple of days ago and it was great fun. I love the reflective quality of the scales. It was a real kick to paint. I'm going to have to talk my students who fish into bringing in part of their spoils for me to explore further.

Beauty Craig! You will have to throw a line in by that bridge you paint at. You could both paint and put food on that table at the same time. Plein Air multitasking.
