Here is a painting of a nice rainbow trout. The idea for this painting came from fellow Blogger Bigerrfish, and his picture of a rainbow he recently caught (hope you don't mind Josh). Also for todays post I've decided to post the evelution of painting this small work. If you look close there is a very small fly in his lip.
First the Pencil Sketch.
Then add a little paint.
Drop in a few spots. Got to have the spots.
Then finish with a load of detail. For the bigger paintings I usualy follow a similar process but add more detail and invest more time into it. This painting is very small for the subject but serves well as a study for future works. I hope you enjoy and thanks again Josh.
