Painting Through Prosek: Provo River Strain Bonneville Cutthroat

The cutties in Utah used to be big. Real big. We are talking 10lbs big. Long gone are those day, but there are some remaining strains of the ancestors of those big fish. I can just imagine James Prosek and his buddy, navigating the Utah landscape in an old pickup truck, searching for the unique strains of trout. 
With only a few paintings left in this project, we stop to admire the Provo River Strain of the Bonneville Cutthroat Trout – a strain native to Utah. 
I was a little too light on the par marks and could have gotten my red coloring of the lateral line better, but I’m happy with the fin. 
I think I have four more set aside to paint. Then it is either on to Trout of the World, or time to look at something other than trout. 
Have a great weekend!
