Fine art illustration of a Brown Trout (Salmo trutta fario.) The illustration is available in black and white or color for immediate download.
The Brown Trout was completed on 2.7.2012. When researching this fish, I realized the image I was using for reference didn’t really represent the ideal of the animal. This is where looking at several different examples of the species comes in handy, including other artist’s representations. Had I stuck with one example, the drawing – while accurate to one possible variation of the trout – would have been dull and muted. The drawing is based on a photo by Matt Jenner.
