Chrome Rainbow Trout from Lake O

Chrome Rainbow from ‘Lake O’

This drawing depicts Josh’s first Rainbow Trout of the season – a bar of gleaming chrome that hit a garish green lure on a grey day at Lake Otamangakau.

Rather than write about the artistic process behind the sketch I thought I’d simply show you instead. I took a series of photographs that include initial sketches and various stages through the final drawing.

A fitting memento to a fantastic fish.
