Fly Fishing Troublesome Creek, Colorado

Troublesome Creek, Colorado

I have hit a snag, trying to find time from my school schedule to resume my Ridglea Theater watercolor.  Meanwhile, I’m posting my first fly fishing watercolor, created about five years ago.  The setting is Troublesome Creek, northwest of Denver, between the towns of Parshall and Kremmling.  I was guided by Bull Basin Outfitters, and thanks to my guide Bob House, had a fantastic day.  This was taken from a photo of my landing a 24-inch Cutthroat.  I did not even know my guide took the picture, using my camera, until two weeks later when I got home and began uploading photos from my digital.  I loved the composition, so I chose to render it in watercolor.  My favorite part of the painting is the stand of trees on the left border. I was working hard on the drybrush, trying to replicate an Andrew Wyeth effect.
