    very cool Kerby, do you find that your flat art work helps with your taxidermy painting? the thought process for this piece, the order of layering is educational for me, I would not have visualized it in this manner. please continue to post more of these, they are very helpful. on a side note, is this done with pencil? thanks paul

    Yes and no .............

    Yes, this was done with Faber-Castell water color pencils (no water though). What has helped me was when I:

    * started painting fish reproductions
    * listening to Jeff Mourning
    * watching Rick Krane fish painting DVDs
    * watching Jerry Yarnell paint

    I just started flat art drawing. I had tried it a few years ago and it looked like a 1st grader did it. Then I saw how someone posted something like this on facebook and thought I could do that. So I started drawing within the last 2 years. I am slowly learning by trial and error. I now wish I would have started 50 years ago (I will be 57 in a couple of weeks).

    I have some more of my work on my website. Just click on ARTWORK. Some even have the progression pictures.

    Wow! that's nice work! Once upon a time I used to do a bit of flat work but haven't done anything for a long time; this has inspired me to get back to it. If I may ask what are you creating these on, what is your canvas, and what are you sealing them with?

    On ..............

    Thanks, I used CANSON-MI TEINTES paper. I tried using a sealer for water color pencils and didn't like the results.

    So nothing, just frame it.
