Picking up the paints today I decided to go a completely different direction than normal and do an abstract Trout. Using the brightest colors available and sharp contrasts I came up with a decorative trout with hints of all three of the main types of trout we all fish for.
First sketching this trout with an acid free artists pen I made the conciseness decision to rough it up a bit. I wanted the finished trout to have a lot of rough edges and an overall unrefined look. I also tried to capture the designs of a Brook Trout, the idea of a Rainbow, and the spots of the Brown Trout.
After the sketch I went to work dropping in the color and working fast to blend the water and pigments before they dried.
Adding a rough fram of black pigment also helped to give this painting a nice look. You wont ever find a trout like this on the river but it sure would brighten the decor of your room.
