"Riffle Riser"

"Riffle Riser" 8x8 acrylic
It's been quite some time since I last posted. It seems the issues I was having with image uploads have been resolved (at least for the time being), so back to the important stuff.
I love painting trout... especially when I have outstanding reference material to work from. Photographing trout underwater is quite a challenge and more often than not, I end up with a whole lot of useless images on my camera. It's at least a two person operation. On the rare days when I can get someone to go fishing with me, there has to be a decent amount of sun (or the images end up blurry) and, of course, we need to fool a couple of fish. When it all comes together, I end up with a painting like this :)
