  Limited Edition Brook Trout Print - Orvis Exclusive   I recently created this limited edition print (above) for Orvis which will be available exclusively through them starting in October.  I haven't really ever created anything like this before.  The idea was to do something that was half painting, half drawing.  I did the drawing in pencil with a stained coffee background and then painted the fish with acrylics.  I also used thin washes to add some color into the drawing around the trout.  The size of the print will be 16x20 and it will be framed in a rustic Adirondack style frame.
