'Study of an Arctic Grayling with Montana Local Colors'

Transparent Watercolor on Crescent Mat Board.
Image Size is 20" x 10".
A cousin to the Salmon & Trout. While in the same family,
the Arctic Grayling looks like one of its ancestors was a Sailfish!
Commonly found in Northern Europe, Russia, Canada & Alaska,
it also is found in the waters around Montana.
The markings for this study are from photographs provided
by The Grizzly Hackle in Missoula, Montana-
A gallery that carries my art work.
The European markings have additional red in the dorsal fin.
The scales on an Arctic Grayling are very pronounced and
caused a few headaches and trashed attempts.
