DAVE'S CATCH


8x8 oil on canvas board

Dave is one of my plein air painting buddies and a man of many talents, not only can he catch his own fish, he can cook them up, too! This is another one of my little 1 hour painting studies and was so much fun to paint. This month's painting challenge for Some Texas Artists Like to Paint is fish, take a look here for more paintings on this subject. Thanks for the photo reference, Dave!

Beautifully painted, Angela. Your brushwork gives the scales of the fish a wonderful shine!

Definitely a "keeper"!!!

Pattie Wall said...

Love the colors you used in this one, Angela! Gives me the feeling that I could reach right in there and feel their scales, too!
Hey - thanks for stopping by.

Hi Angela, saw this painting in Vern's sidebar and it got my attention immediately. I think this is a fantastic piece! I wanted to go on over and submit a fish painting too but I noticed it's only for the Texans. That's a good way to showcase artist in your state.

Great use of golds in their fins and tails - it looks great against those greens!

Stephen Parker said...

This is fantastic, Angela. Love the composition, thick paint and the strong values. Beautiful job.

FIVE HICOOS FOR ETERNITY

– Mirror on the wall,
please tell me, how cän I find
the Source of my Self?

– Flashboy, reflection
depends on your Mind, gone like
a window across

This aperture's well
into the trees in order
to get the picture

No camera yields
by the thunder of silence
while nothing stays real

Like Void breaks the still
ness of a lightning above
that calm forest lake.

Single Swingle

- Yours, Peter Ingestad, Sverige
