I love casein, it’s a wonderful water medium. It’s far more permanent than watercolor and gouache and it avoids the frequent plastic and/or garish look of acrylic. It’s made from milk and has existed as a painting medium for centuries. It has a ‘graphic’ look unique unto itself, flatter than oils, yet as colorful.
Ted caught this fish in Lake Pleasant, a lake in northern Maricopa County in Arizona. It’s about 14.5″ long and is painted close to full scale.
Greyling is a fresh water fish that lives at high altitudes (think Colorado). It’s a relative of trout but has scales whereas trout do not. It’s painted at close to full scale. They’re quite colorful.
