This Brown trout is special it is the first piece from this Fish collection to be painted in encaustic. Encaustic is an ancient painting technique where you paint with molten beeswax, damar tree resin and pigment powder. It creates a beautiful luminous color and the texture is delicious!
The Brown Trout species is a large fish that’s known for its long lifespan and being difficult to catch. Maybe that’s why the brown trout painting in Rachel’s Fish Series has an air of nonchalance about it. Large and in charge, this green beauty wears the identifiable pattern of black and red splotches surrounded by light halos (some of which are created with metal washers for an added embellishment) running along its sleek body. This visually stunning brown trout art will make a statement on any wall.
