Colin has moved on from his pencil study of a leaping salmon, and has now produced this beautiful painting in watercolour.

He was so focused on getting the shape and texture just right that he very nearly forgot to paint the spots on its scales.  I thought this was just the kind of thing that I would like to do, and I did offer, but sadly I was turned down…

This painting is already spoken for, as is the pencil drawing that I featured a month or so ago.  A woodcock pin-feather painting is now on the easel.   If you’d like to watch Colin’s images in progress, check out the Latest Paintings section of his website, www.wildart.co.uk.
