Default New Rainbow Trout Artwork - Fresh off the Drawing Table

Hey gang,

Been a while since I've been on here. Took a 6 week hiatus as I was guiding in the Arctic. While I was up there I had a piece that I needed to work on and finish for the Manitoba Fisheries Enhancement Stamp Competition. The deadline is next week so I needed to get the bulk of the piece done while up at the lodge.

This was a fun piece as it's the first "fine art" piece I've done in almost two years. Recently my work has been more geared towards just fish in action poses to put on apparel. So it was a refreshing piece to re-ignite the creative juices.

I'm glad it's done as now that I'm back I find myself playing catch up with commissioned works and custom art for clients. Luckily they understood I was unavailable for 6 weeks and waited. =P

Cheers,
Nick

That's awesome dude!! I really need to get back into drawing on a regular basis.

Oh I know, I wanted to ask you, are you using prismacolors for your pencils or another brand?

Nick,

Stunning artwork! I would buy a stamp with that picture on it all day long. Thanks for sharing your talent with us. I showed my daughter, who just turned 10. She is heavily into art and takes private lessons twice a week. She was thrilled to see your work. She said now she wants to draw a fish.

Thanks for the inspiration, and good luck with the stamp competition. Let us know the outcome so we can buy your stamps.

That's awesome to hear about your daughter! Art was the one thing that I stuck with all my life. I tried several musical instruments, all kinds of hobbies, and the one that lasted was always art. =)

The stamp competition is for artist's work to be chosen for all the Manitoba Fishing Licenses on which they feature an enhancement stamp for that year. They also sell limited edition prints of the winning artwork. It's a pretty great program and helps artists gain exposure and show off their work. =)

Thanks everyone! Going to be starting another one right away that is similar to this one for a friend's clothing line.
