No Strings Attached

High quality prints now available of the acrylic painting “No Strings Attached” https://fineartamerica.com/featured/no-strings-attached-nick-laferriere.html?newartwork=true

A spawning scene of Colorado River Cutthroat Trout, depicting a flaring male and two hens. The name is a play on words to both say they shouldn’t be fished during the spawn (no strings attached) and because they’re spawning and they don’t form pair bonds. (no strings attached).

I had a lot of fun on this one and learned a ton about water reflection/refraction. It took a long time and several repaints to get the water just right.

As with anything, the painting looks better in person and doesn’t translate very well on a computer screen. But alas, it’s the best I can do.

Original 18″ x 24″ painting is available.

Westslope Cutthroat

For those who’ve experienced fishing a remote, mountain cutty river, it provides hours of great dry fly action in some of the most picturesque landscapes on the continent. Eager to take a fly, cutties are a ton of fun on light fly gear and great for novice and experienced anglers.

This piece was done life-size at 600dpi using a Wacom tablet and Photoshop.
