Please see my other listings - Two other original paintings, a stunning Brown Trout and a fresh run Rotorua Rainbow Trout. I also have two limited edition prints presently listed.

This lifelike watercolour painting, by well known New Zealand artist Martin Simpson, depicts a stunning Rainbow Trout in spawning colours from the Tongariro river near Taupo. The warm afternoon light, the boulders and the pumice, will be well known by anyone who has had the pleasure of fishing the mighty Tongariro.

Frame size 30 x 40 inches
Painting size 30 x 20 inches.
The trout and stones are life size.
Anatomically correct down to the finest details.
Ready to Hang.

Painted in water colour (Gouache) on Archival quality Illustration board and framed behind glass with a black mount in a black frame.

This painting appeared on the cover of New Zealand's Fish and Game magazine, Issue 58, 2007, and was the first artwork to have that honour.
A rare opportunity to buy an original at less than gallery price.
