Bluegill Gyotaku - Richie Gudzan

Sometimes these little freshwater fish are as much fun to paint as the big pelagics. As evidenced by this commission piece of a bluegill for a kiddo's first catch ever, they can certainly carry just as much weight. I started with a traditional gyotaku "fish rubbing", and finished in watercolor to really bring it back to life.
