So Justin Craddock, a buddy of mine from Utah Water Log who is a great photographer, writer / blogger, angler, and adventurer,
posted this beautiful shot of a colored up cutty from one of his recent trips to a favorite little spot.
I was blown away when I saw the photo, it is a perfect capture that kicked me square in the right side of my brain.

This will certainly be fun as well as challenging, I hope I can do it justice...

I burned through a lot of eraser, but I think I am about ready to start adding some color..

So far so good, the netting is tricky, but fun.

It is starting to come together and I am pretty happy with it, I think...

Spent about 14 hours over the weekend, getting to where I start obsessing..

The transitions between the reflections and the sub surface is going to be interesting to pull off.

Took a little break on this, trying to figure out how and where to get back into it..

I normally do not mix cool, warm and French grays together, kind of a mental block, but this piece is calling for all three as well as various tones
of browns, oranges and reds to be all mixed together..

Feeling like I am starting to close in on it.

Went through it and made some tone adjustments, added some highlights and shadows, and tried to pull everything together.
This was by far the most challenging piece to date, thanks again to Justin Craddock for the amazing reference photo to work from!
