Fish art: Latest Trout Watercolor painting

I recently finished another watercolor fish painting for a guy up here in Utah. This is a Brown that he caught in one of the Great Lakes tribs in New York. The actual fish was 30 inches long, and he said he wanted it life-size, but a full sheet of watercolor paper is exactly 30 inches wide! Fortunately I found a "watercolor board" that was plenty big.

Here's what she came out like:

It's only the front half, but you get the idea. The colors look really drab on this shot, but it's the only one I have. You get the idea. I always love your feedback... positive and negative. Need to know where to work on improving.

If you haven't seen the others I've posted on here, they're on these:

Hard to improve that. My wife is a very good artist and she is very impressed. Can't wait to see more. Keep up the good work.

The details in and around the face and jaw are stunning! Heck the details in the entire print for that matter. One of your most life like prints to date IMO. Amazing work bro.

Now with that said... It ain't no Lahootie. Get back to work!

Another gem!

mvtoro, do you have an online "gallery" set up where someone can view all of your work?
