The Release Finished...

I am calling this one finished.. I may make a few minor changes after Gary studies it but all in all I am pleased with the results. The first two photo's I took with auto settings on my camera and now that I have taken one with the correct settings the colors are much truer to the actual painting.

The Release

Next week is Gary's birthday... I saw this image on his computer screen being used as his screen saver... I was struck by the beautiful colors and knew it had to be one of his catches. When I ask him about it he confirmed it was caught and released by him last year. I decided I would paint it for him and this is my progress to date. He is an staunch "catch and release" guy so the title seems appropriate.
