This is a White Crappie that I painted for my niece for Christmas. Crappies may be my favorite fish.

ACEO Trout

Decided to try some Art Cards, 2 1/2'' x 3 1/2''. Rainbow trout head and Brookie fin. Almost went a little abstract by going with parts but I tried to still make them realistic.

Added a Brown Trout I did on Friday evening.

Musky done

I think I'm going to call it done. Was going to do a background but I like how it looked without.

Update on the Muskie. Getting close to done.

Been in a painting mood so I started another fish this evening. Eye, fin and some detail left to go.

Work in Progress 2

Got it pretty well done now but still need to do some shading and touch ups. I'll give it a day or two to look at before I do that. Not really sure if I like painting life sized flies or not. Not as much fun as the big ones. I'm happy with the bass colors, didn't want it to get too dark.

Work in progress

Here is my progression on a Smallmouth Bass painting I started this evening. Got quite a ways but quit now that I'm getting a little tired. The room at the bottom is for some flies that I have sketched on there, you can kind of see some of the pencil marks. Not sure how it will work out but wanted to do something different.

Here is a commissioned piece I've just finished of a young boys first fish. Tried for a 1950's fish identification guide look. Some might think that this is a little old fashioned style of painting... so I'm old fashioned. hehehe

Here is a recent commission I did. It's nice to have a beautiful fish as the subject, makes things easier for me. :-)
