My Favorite Trout that's not a Trout
Here is a painting of the Brook Trout my wife caught at rock lakes. The Brook trout is one of my favorites even though it's not really a trout but a Char. I love the brook trout's intense colors the bright orange/red belly and the dark green almost black back. The Brook trout's yellow spots however pose a challenge when painting it, next time I will use a "maskit" for the spots. I am also not too happy with the head its a little strange but over all its a decent rendering of the fish.
