Big Brown - Finished

Water Color on Paper - 15" x 22" - I posted this as a "Work in progress" previously and have completed the painting. I am very happy with the outcome. This work is inspired by a Big Brown Trout caught by Josh Graffam in New Zealand. See the fish here:

Auction Item for the Angler's Club of Philadelphia

The smaller painitng is the 5" x 8" "study" for the "master work". The little brookie was donated to the Annual Silent Auction at the Angler's Club of Philadelphia's annual diner at Appleford. The evening was a great success. Our presenter was Gary Borger, who is one of the world's foremost fly fishing educators, holding a Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Please read his notes on the evening here:
