A few of David Womack's paintings popped up in one of the groups I'm in on Facebook, and I soon contacted him to get him to participate in our Fishy Artists series. David agreed and I fired off my usual row of questions. Find his replies and some samples of his stunning paintings on this page.

a) How did you start working with art and with fishing related art in particular?

I grew up on the gulf coast in the small town of Gulf Breeze located in Floridas panhandle. My family had a strong presence both in fishing and in art. I first started drawing sometime when I was in high school but I spent most of my free time with family and friends out on the water, usually fishing.
After graduating I followed in other family members footsteps and decided to pursue art. I signed up for as many art classes that I could at a local community college but after just one formal painting class I realized I had found my passion for painting. I focused on teaching myself and developing my on style and fish and anything aquatic naturally became my favorite subject matter.

b) Why fish and/or fishing?

Fishing has always been a big part of my life and something about the water has always captured my attention and imagination. As a kid I remember wondering about what was just below the surface and what life existed in its depths. Still to this day when I'm out on the water my imagination starts to wander and I'm left with images and visuals that serve as inspiration for my art.

c) What is your preferred method of painting/drawing/producing your work - if any?

I work mostly with acrylics due to the fact that they dry fast and can be easily thinned with water, which allows me to create depth by applying transparent layers or washes. I also use oils on occasion, sometimes over acrylic, when I'm going for a smoother look.

d) Is the art your main source of income - if at all a source of income - or do you do other jobs as a supplement?

Over the years my art has generated some income, mainly through friends or other acquaintances that know about my work. I have worked many jobs from carpentry, house painting and HVAC to support my art but I have recently been able to pursue my art full time.

e) Can people buy your art and if so, then in which form and where?

My art can be purchased through my website or directly through me. I offer original paintings (if available) and everything from signed paper prints to full scale reproductions on canvas. I also take commissions and offer designs based off my paintings to be used for apparel and fishing brands.

f) Where do you currently live and work?

I currently live outside of Denver in Centennial Colorado and work out of my in-home studio.

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
