Artwork on the Dark Days of November

No better way to ponder about my Arctic char fishing at Inukshuk Lodge at Nunavik Quebec this past summer than to kick back during a few cold dark November days and break out the watercolors.

As much as I hate the fact that it doesn’t get light until nearly 8 AM and it gets dark at 5 PM, it’s a fun time to be creative and paint.

I’ve only painted three Arctic char in my life that I can remember.  Any of the char from brook trout to bull trout are challenging with watercolors because you can’t paint a light color over a dark.  What’s done is done once that paint is down.  I am very happy with how this fish of Ungava Bay came out.

Don’t forget Christmas is coming fast.  Not only can you order a painting or have me decorate a Cliff fly box, but check out my new fish decals.  There’s a chance for some free decals too!  And as always – my coffee mugs and beer steins are the ultimate gift for the angler that has EVERYTHING- SHOP ONLINE!
