ok so I had to paint two fish here at school so.....the first up is a Red Fish. I chose this for my first (first ever painted fish btw) fish as my son caught a 29" Red when he was about 9 or so while we were on vacation. It was the first "big" fish he'd ever caught at the time. I'm having to go off of memory for the paint scheme ( in my defense I drink a lot so when I get home it may not be exact but hey) First I started with a blank, installed and tape eyes and fins. from here it was a matter of layering paints and detail work. Tomorrow after it cures I'll inspect and pull the tape off of the eyes. For my first Fish I'm pretty happy.
