Beautiful Swimmers
is the latest permit painting that I've done. They're such dynamic fish and the ultimate fish to catch on a fly rod. This is also a change in formatting, a rare vertical painting! I particularly like the composition in this piece with lots of water on top of the subject to show the depth. Because of the depth, the greens and light blues that you would find in shallower water are tending more to the darker blues but still enough light to make the sand shine. I tried to represent the movement of the ray by highlighting the sand that the ray would kick up in the process of hunting for crabs or shrimp that would be buried deep in the sand. Of course the permit is looking for anything the ray discovered that might have escaped.

Vaughn Cochran

Regarded as one of the best and more innovative artists in the world of
fishing art, Vaughn’s current groups of pencil drawings, watercolors, mixed
media, acrylic and oil paintings would be classified as contemporary sporting
art and represents the last 20 years of his work. He was trained as a fine
artist, taught at a university and his portfolio now spans over 40 years.

A multifaceted artist, he is skilled in many mediums including painting in
oil and watercolor, ceramic sculpture, art pottery, printmaking, intaglio,
silkscreen, woodcarving, batik and metal working and casting.

His contemporary sporting art reflects the world of professional fishing
where Vaughn was a fly-fishing guide for many years. “In my travels, I always
had my camera and sketch book”, says Vaughn “I’ve filled several journals with
ideas and notes for paintings and sculptures that revolve around fish and life
on the water.”
