Just to break up the landscapes I painted this rainbow trout. It was a fun change of pace, a lot of paint manipulation and experimenting. The painting difficult to capture with a photograph so I am including a closeup that is more inline with the feel of the painting.
Here are three trout paintings I recently completed. The slick shiny trout lend themselves well to the paint.
Both of my recent paintings of rainbow trout. I was starting to put together a small collection of them but now one of them has sold via Instagram so the collection is already not a collection… I am not complaining I am pleased there is an interest!
Apparently I am doing a little series of trout paintings! This was not my plan but was inspired by some 10” paintings I created a bit over a year ago. Fish are an intriguing subject with their slick metallic skin and smooth curves. This second painting is also 14”x11”.
This is a 14”x11” acrylic painting. There is an intriguing quality to the slick silvery body of a trout, it makes for a compelling subject. They are one of the creatures that live in that big body of water I have become fairly obsessed with so it is nice to pay tribute to the mighty rainbow trout.
This is a painting I did a bit over a year ago. I painted 5 trout images and a less then flattering but reasonably accurate self portrait. I was painting small 10″x10″ paintings as I was between studios. I discovered that they made a really cool single art piece when hung together. Now that I am in a great new studio space I have been digging through works for some upcoming shows and rediscovered these. People keep trying to buy the individual fish paintings, curiously no one wants the self portrait! For whatever reason I refuse to break up the band and am going to hang them all together in my new studio…
Here is the complete collection of my recent paintings. They are each 10″ x 10″ acrylic paintings.
Here are the three fish paintings together. These are 10″x10″ acrylic paintings.
The third painting in my loose rainbow trout series. This is also a 10″x10″ acrylic painting.
I will post the three together soon!
The second 10″x10″ acrylic painting in a series. Not sure if I am done with this one yet…
