Sea-Run Cutthroat Trout by Ken Kirkby
24″ x48″ Oil on Canvas
c/o the artist
A Sea-Run Cutthroat Trout is a beautiful fish, they spend time at sea, the brackish intertidal waters as well as the cold fresh streams of Vancouver Island.
They’re very pretty, with a distinct couple of orange/red lines in the skin folds of each side of the lower jaw. Cuttys are colored dark olive-green on their back, with flashy silvery sides and numerous black spots head to tail.
In this series of paintings, Ken Kirkby shows he is a passionate fisherman, you cannot paint a fish like this unless you have spent a great deal of time observing them ~ he has, and it shows.
