Fine art illustration of a Walleye (Sander Vitreus.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Walleye was completed on 8.28.2011. Growing up in Minnesota, walleyes were storied fish and the standard for the kind of fish you wanted to catch when you hit the lake. So, when I started to work on a series of notable freshwater sports fish, this species was an obvious choice. Now, the challenge is to create a drawing of the fish without really being able to study what it looks like as few images exist of the fish underwater. I studied a few images of people holding their catch, and also studied some images of walleyes mounted by taxidermists. The images is based on a mounted species by Doug Petrousek
