Trout Painting On A Burl Of Palm Wood
First I found the obvious place to place the head and sketched out a trout. I didn't want the whole piece of wood to be covered with paint so I stopped at the tail end of the gill plate.
After I painted it up and added the spots and highlights, I then coated the whole project with a clear coat of gloss. The picture may not show the true beauty of this piece but in the end I believed that I achieved what I set out to do. I honestly have no idea what I am going to do with it (as with most of my paintings that are in the studio) but it made a nice shelf piece and I think that's where it will end up; right above my tying desk until it finds a new home.
And finally as a reminder, if you have not entered to win one of the three prizes listed in my previous post then I suggest you head over and fill out a comment and share the post for your chance to win. Many of you have already done so and I thank you.
