Sailfish - (Copyright Craig Bertram Smith-2009)
“Sailfish” – The Sailfish and Marlin are species that I have planned to paint and draw more of in the future. This must be the ultimate game fish. The design of this fish species is flawless, it is without exception one of the most beautiful and spectacular of all the big game fish and when its large sail-fin is extended, you just have to marvel at it. Watching these fish hunting and chasing small bait fish is truly a moment that has to recorded in some way. I have many images and scenarios in my head of paintings that I will be painting soon. Here a familiar pose seen by the fortunate few fisherman, of a Sailfish leaping, trying to free itself of the hook.
