Painting vs Fishing

February 25, 2014

Steelhead season has finally taken off, so not a lot of painting getting done.  I am 3 for 4 so far this year with two wild and one hatchery.  It hasn’t been a great season, and I am sort of looking forward to fishing the jetty again (or at least tidewater).

Here is a fairly rubbish painting of an elf.  However, I like this sort of assembled with brushstrokes type of approach and think it is going somewhere.

It looks like it is painted on a fruit roll-up

I guess I just really liked the idea of an owl mourning a hat.  Sorry it took six pages to get there.

Finishing this story out with a pencil pen combo that didn’t really work.  I think I will have to get a thinner pen to do the shading.  More importantly, that poor poor hat.  I am picturing burying it at sea, or one of those composty Waterworld things.

While this painting has some unresolved issues, it was a lot of fun to paint and has inspired the next one, which is always a good feeling.

If you don’t notice the little gnome hat in the boat, this sequence loses all of its charm.

Page four already and not much has happened.  I think this would be much shorter if I could draw smaller.

Even if your boat is pulled by a giant bear, you are still the captain in my book.

Oh the scale is all wrong.
