A great way for searching children's book! Thank you Peige!
as you can tell, my studio "table" is pretty "big" I usually put a carpet on top of my table and I usually lay on top of the table when I paint, sometimes... : P The roomy work space will alway allow me to spread all the material around me, when I get tired, I just close my eyes and take a nap! I am currently working on those two pieces of trout. They still waiting for spots and need more detail work on it. OK, why post those half-done work? well... because sometime the ongoing work will end those pieces into trash can. And I would like to have some records for future reference. All the steps are good for learning. Also I would like to show friends how the work get progresses, those behind the scene photos are really attractive to me!
You probably can tell that I am promoting "kids fishing" from my kid policy. The reason is very simple - all my childhood is full of those wonderful fishing experience. I just wish other kids can have chance to go out and enjoy the beauty of the nature. Sadly, I have not been able to illustrate the kid's art in those days... It's hard! Actually. I feel it is much difficult to see things like kids again. But I will try to do it more in the future... The art designated for kids. This logo is just a start, inspired by my friend, he actually done this with his 3 years old kid - Hadley. The one in the movie below... : )
Some quick wash to capture "the moldiness" of the chum salmon. Because of the intense decaying skin combine with some beautiful coloration, it all make chum project more challenging and more fun.
The madison brown trout have been sit like this on my floor for almost 1 month. I feel it is good for now... maybe I should just leave it like this as a ghost... as most trophies does to fisherman. Now... presents.
