My inspiration was a beautifully illustrated book on the trout of North America, particularly the brilliant spawning colours. Cover: watercolour, acrylics and ink on 260# Winsor & Newton CP watercolour paper which was then coated with an archival, waterbased varnish. Pages: Arches 90# text colour washed with paints and inks. Lettering was done with Rotring Artists Color. Fins and tail are embossed copper.
