11x14 watercolor. Fishing lures.
This was a try in watercolor at a composition of fishing lures. 
In this case I pretty much executed the painting as planned, but halfway through knew I wanted to do it again in a different medium. Oils or acrylics would handle this painting better. It's a funny thing how some subjects or ideas beg one medium over another. 
We shall see what I come up with trying this again with different paint.  Feb.24 2009 SF
