Oncorhynchus Mykiss
"Oncorhynchus Mykiss" commission finished!  I was asked to do a rainbow trout piece for an avid fisherman.....and here it is.  I had a lot of fun with not only the fish, but all that hair.  I'd been wanting to try detailed curly hair for a while, and while it *was* tedious, I also really enjoyed myself and learned something in the process. 

Mixed media 18" x 24"
