White Fin Brookie


I had a few hours free yesterday and felt like doing a bit of higher quality painting so I began work on this "White Fin Brookie".  Roughly measuring 8"x10.5" and done with high quality watercolors on 100% cotton acid free paper, it comes with a yellow fur scud for the fly.  The original is for sale for $90 plus S&H or if you prefer Prints are available in 8x10 for $11.50 as well as the new smaller sized 5x7 for $8.50.  As always paintings and prints come in acid free archival quality mats and backing boards.
 I do love fishing these brookies.  The colors of the high mountain brookies and native fish are truly amazing.  When I hook into these its like hooking into a work of art, fighting it, and then releasing it back to isolated pools from which it was born.  The deep colors of the oranges and reds are only matched by the stark white fin ridges of these brookies.  In my opinion the a brilliant colored brookie is the best looking of the char species.

I was a bit focused on this painting and once again completely forgot to take some pictures of the process until it was nearly completed.  So here is one photo of the Whit Fin Brookie all but done.  Next time I promise to spend a bit more time taking pictures for those of you that enjoy seeing the colors layer up to the final painting.
