Sailfish Portrait
Acrylic on canvas 20 " x 24 " (50cm X 60cm) - © Craig Bertram Smith 2015

I was asked to portray a special memory of an impressive sailfish caught on fly rod. I was given a few photos
to choose from and decided on the one in the picture. Before starting, I introduced an underwater perspective
to show the rest of sailfish creating an interesting composition. I added in a bit of cloud detail to
add to the feel of the painting.
