Al-Heeshan's Silver Bream by Nawaf-Alhmeli Al-Heeshan's Silver Bream by Nawaf-Alhmeli
Al-Heeshan's Silver Bream.
Oil on canvas, 81 X 61 cm.

Al-Heeshan is a very popular fishing spot in Kuwait known for its Silver Breams.
I used my own catch & fishing accessories for the composition in addition to my late Grandfather's knife which he used for fishing during his lifetime.
Kuwaiti fishermen prefer the traditional fishing methods, they do things "old school" and do not prefer to use fishing rods unless they have to.

You know what I thought when I saw this?

*clicks on the thumbnail*
I wonder why this is a DD? It looks like a bunch of random objects in a photo?
But maybe it's one of those really realistic paintings that look like a photograph?
*image is shown full size*
Oh, it is a photo. But why the...?
OH MY GOSH IT IS A PAINTING.

Interestingly, the silver bream looks like it must be related to Tilapia and Sheephead. Totally random observance, but I think its good sign your painting is wonderfully accurate.

You're right with regard to Sheepshead, they are of the same family.

Took me a second to stop focusing on the Portal colored wires and figure out what was going on in this picture :P
