Jack Cobb...muskie lure, oil....8x10

well...started this one today...could have finished, but did not like how the background has progressed...

I scraped basically all below the lure out...and will try again...looks all too polished right now, has less character...so, wanted to share this one at a stage where I'm wrestling with it...

This is exactly what I struggle with the most, a large area of the picture with nothing to describe. It either goes very quickly, or can take days of wiping out and re-doing. Hope it goes well for you.
I like this series of lures -- I think I have some of these.
Link to Quang Ho, amazing work!
How's about them Packers, eh?

*argh* to my rookie eye this is a finished painting. I shall wait patiently to be enlightened...
