    The Month in Fish Pictures "Autumn Edition" November / December 2021!!!!!!!

    A warm welcome from Hinsdale New Hampshire!

    Autumn is here and we head in to the Holiday seasons! The colors of the leaves here in New Hampshire still linger for those to see the last of the Fall Beauty. I hope every one is safe and healthy as well stay that way! Had the chance to fish with our friend Dave Shepack for Brookies it always reminds me of Autumn the blaze of orange and the pop of red all set on an amber and fading green back ground. We live once and keep your memory's close to your stride as you walk through a life worth living! This will be the last entry for me in 2021 and I'll great you again in 2022!

    A new install of the month in fish picture for all to enjoy! The shows will be started up again in some states even some in virtual settings! Just shows how passionate we are and resilient we are for the love of what we share!

    Don’t forget to call a friend and talk to folks about how they are doing import I think it is to do this especially during these days!

    Over the past decade’s a wealth of contributors and many great folks who take time to share in this great tradition! We all begin somewhere and all the learning and work hard that goes into the pursuit at being is what makes us the fish artists we become

    Why so we share your work!!!!! This tradition of the Month in Fish Pictures has always been a spot on the taxidermy.net where folks can and do come to show their work without criticism and hard comments! So, let’s remember to always keep it that way. As the moderator of this section, I do not get too involved with censorship not do I ever want to. So be respectful of all and remember we all have a long way to go and should be enjoying the processes!

    Thanks to all the friends sharing their gifts and talents! Inspiration in what we share is part of the friendliness and positive observations of fans of fish work. This is a great place to start in upward in direction of inspiration other with your work regardless of your skill level as a fish taxidermist or Fish-carver!

    You’re here reading because you want to be inspired to be the best Fish-head you can be! Always be thankful for your gifts of great passion and talent as an artist! It is a blessing to me for our lives to be joined from time to time to share and learn from one another so thank you for your great taxidermy work and your lives continue to be blessed with inspiration!!!!

    I want to personally say thank you for joining me each month for each installment of the Bi-Monthly in Fish Pictures to share in your successes and accomplishments! I have seen first-hand the great strides so many have made with beautiful fish work! Good for you and congratulations on your hard work!!!!

    A BIG thank all the great contributors who not only share their personal great talents and work but also rather give such positive inspiration to all of us!

    All levels of artists are welcome!!!! From beginners to the best in the world we all join in every month in a critique free and hassle-free string with nothing more than great artist and inspiring fish taxidermist and carves get together to share with one another their praise and inspiration of good will and friendship to one another. No egos just friendly folks who appreciate the efforts of others!

    I want to start the November/December with a look at the a group of folks who joined me in Alaska for a workshop on painting fish. Our fish community brings us together in time where so many are struggling to find a common ground.

    Can’t wait to see your beautiful fish work this segment! See you in January 2022 for a new year of inspiration! Be “SAFE” and be kind to one another!

    Winter and a New Year will be here soon so here is to a great Winter for the rest of 2021!!

    For not being very good at fish, you seem to be able to make a pale fish look pretty darn good.

    Very nice Ryan! and thanks Carl for the "Sweet". Much of the iridescence coloration in pelagic fish is in the slime coat. Metallic powders can be mixed into clear, as can pan pastels and used to duplicate that iridescents. You can also use just a carrier like alcohol which when evaporated allows the powder to be removed and detailed as you would if applied dry. The intensity of the wet mix is far easier to control over application in dry form and allows for mixing colors easily over using powder products in the dry state. As an example, this Blue Bluefin-Tuna-WR (1).jpg Fin Tuna repo was layard heavily with powders applied wet and mixed with clear, and detailed areas powder mixed wet with a carrier that evaporates leaving just the powder that can be manipulated. Hope some find this interesting!
