Beginning Rainbow Trout Painting

Finally started on a new, large underwater painting....this photo shows it about halfway done. I actually really like this stage—between the hurdle of getting starting and laying down a layer or two of paint and the point where everything goes downhill and I'm not sure I can pull it out.
This amazing trout in a crystal clear stream is from a photo Tim Pask took recently on a fishing trip in Alaska. I am very taken with the brilliant color of the fish, looking like molten gold and the deep turquoise, indigo of the water. Stay posted for the next progress report.
