Mission Lodge Grayling Fish Replica

My most recent art consignment was to create a replica of a 23″ Arctic Grayling. The photos supplied indicated a very “blueish” color in this fish.

Grayling are found throughout the Rocky Mountain states as well as Canada, however, the Arctic Grayling is a very unique strain. With this fish the blue coloration is enhanced particularly when they are in spawning mode. I worked hard to capture that blue tint but also stayed focused on building the scales on the fish in a realistic fashion.

Once I completed the grayling fish replica, I took the time to go through my driftwood collection to find just the right piece that would not only match the habitat the fish was caught in, but would enhance the atmosphere in Mission Lodge.
