Small Mouth Bass are found in waters of the US, north to south East to west. The fish shown here was caught in the Adirondack Park in New York. It’s a little unusual in that it was a yellow ocher color. Most are in the green grey range. Perhaps the anomaly can be explained byContinue reading “Small Mouth Bass”

Rock Bass are warm water fish, This one was caught and released in Lake Adirondack in upstate New York. Pastels are a really good media when depicting the vibrant nuances of shiny, scaly fish, much easier for me to control than watercolor. https://www.dailypaintworks.com/buy/auction/1079279
