'Watercolor Study of a Marble Trout (Salmo marmoratus)'

Rare trout species from the Gorisk Region of Slovenia, found
in the Julian Alps in the Soca River Basin. The second largest
trout in Europe getting over 30 " in length.

I am starting to paint on a larger scale. Almost double what I had done for the 
first 50 species of fish that I painted. I gives me the ability to add even
more detail to the painting. Much of the research was from
Dan Sheppard's TV Flyfishing Show "Wild on the Fly".
He is based out of Montana, and gave me wonderful 
insight into this rare species.
