The Grace and Beauty of the female Steelhead....

Looking at an object is not just looking at an object. As simple as that sounds, I realized in particular with this 'Steelhead project', it is so enriching and challenging for me to get the input of a fisherman on how he perceives a particular fish. Now, these two renderings of a ...and this is a particular important detail...female Steelhead were born with very colorful and rich background details on this fish, which wanted me to portray 'her' as the beautiful,  chrome-colored, elegant and very subdued in color fish...which only underlines her magnificent shape and shine. Never satisfied, I started a second rendering right after I finished the first one. You'll be the judge. 

Wishing us all better weather and beautiful summer days soon to come,
