A large salmon safely returned to the river. A moment of conservation and caring. This painting highlights the interaction between humans and fish. How our actions impact their lives. Underwater paintings are fascinating to create. To get the feeling of the liquid power of both fish and the water. An invitation to submerge yourself and peak into another world that so needs our protection. To emulate the shine of the salmon with paint and create the feel of muscle under scale. To suggest the ever-changing look and feeling of the water's transparency with dancing light. A painters challenge.
