Young Brook Trout Watercolor
I have added a little progressive photo log of my attempt to capture this trout in watercolor. The lighting for these photos left much to be desired but I hope you get the idea.
I then started this painting with some basic underlying colors such as a muted yellow, olive greens, and light cerulean blue. Depending on the effect I am looking for, I will either wait for the paint to dry completely or only slightly before adding additional layers of color.
As you can see here, I've added deeper greenish blues to the flanks of the trout to show the tell tale marking of a younger fish. I have also been careful to allow much of the underlying yellows to show through as spots and swirls on the sides and back of the trout.
