Night Pool – studies of spawning Sea-trout and Salmon

‘Night Pool’ – Oils on Canvas, Sold by Christies' St.James' London 2009 – $4885

Over some years I made night observations of spawning sea-trout and salmon, in the rivers and burns close to my home. With an accomplice or two, an early winter night with light rain, the ideal time. The preoccupied fish, once located, could be approached with care and small flashlights. Later at the studio, my drawings and vivid memories of their intimate behavior, assisted me in developing the large easel paintings, watercolors and pastels. Of course, permission from the local bailiff must always be sought for such adventures, although our presence did deter the enthusiasm of fish poachers.
