Flies On A Lilly


Have you ever hunted Big Bass or Bluegills in a pond and just knew that there was a bruiser hiding under the lily pads. One cast just on the edge or perhaps a hairy mouse like pattern landed on the pad itself then gently pulled into the water begging that fish to bite.
That is what I thought of when I saw Mikes pic of his flies on a big lilly and it was his photo that inspired this work. Flies On A Lily is 8in. X 11in. watercolor. I have also added a progressive record to show how it came together.
Please visit Mikes Gone Fishing and tell him I sent you.

Scetched out and then pened over...
